You keep callin' & callin' me claimin' to be my answer to love, joy, friendship, protection & peace.
Snow, blow, crack, weed, PCP, LSD, Ecstasy--all y'all got me
trippin' and out here wheelin' & dealin', stealin' & killin'
and I'm
fallin'
I'm fallin'

Around the clock you be callin' me & I ask "How high?"
"Sky high" you say & even promised I could fly--you lied.
Just one more shot of heroin, another smoke, hit, sniff & to get it I turn more & more tricks
and I'm
fallin'
I'm fallin'

Money's gone, friends gone, family gone, & I'm hurtin'
so where are you now, "friend?" You lied to me--again.
For once come clean and tell me the truth!
How many like me have you bamboozled or duped?
And they're
fallin'
like I'm
fallin'
we're all
fallin'

Bamboozled is a poem from the contemporary young adult novel, Imani in Never Say Goodbye. Copyrighted 2003
