Knock it off


Cut the mess


 


This is ridiculous


 


How many times must we be pimped?


How many times must we be under represented?


 


How much longer will it be before we see the truth?


 


Before we fight back and take a stand, let the devil, anyone or anything else that does us wrong know that enough is enough!


 


Fool who told you it was kuul to drive a 2004 suburban and you live in the projects while the government pays for you and your kids.


 


Who told you it was kuul to drive a Hummer in New York City, let alone be a grown ass man living with his momma, sister and her 3 kids in a 3 bedroom apartment.


 


Fool who told you that it was alright to spend your money buying the “so called” latest clothes for yourself and your child looks like they live on the streets.


 


Fool who told you that it was ok to dress your child in FUBU, Sean John, and all the name brands and children grow faster than weeds.  Your child may look cute but they can’t talk worth a damn and they are older than 4 years old


 


Who told you it was okay to keep up with the neighbors buying an entertainment center, clothes, and etc and you barely feed yourself and four kids.


 


Yes all that and then some makes me Fit to be tied


Fool who told you that it was okay to buy the hottest and latest cell phone, jewels, cars and outfits.  While your 8 year old is reading 2 years below grade level and you’re 16 year old is some knucklehead on the corner with a caramel complexion and bragging to his friends that he is “light skinned,” and his ass is in the 8th grade.


 


Who told you that mess was ok?


 


When is enough enough and we stop allowing the media to educate us?


 


When are you gonna get off your lazy ass and stop letting the government support you, your kids, and your grandchildren? 


 


Shyt nobody owes you anything. You owe yourself to stop be an ignorant ass and be responsible and handle your business.


 


The same way your opened you legs to have all the kids and not go to work or school is the same way you can close those legs and stop letting that man sleep all up in your house doing nothing but yelling at you.


 


The same way you can buy a beer every day is the same way you can save that money for a rainy day.


 


Fool who told you that you always need money to do fun things with your kids?  Or that just a little interest in your child’s day will not go along way for you and them.


 


Who told you those lies and nonsense?


 


I’m Fit to be tied! 


 


You should be fit too be tied as well and had enough of the nonsense and ready to take action.


 


Do it now before it is too late and you no longer have options and choices.


 


Do what you can before someone does it for you.
