Fruit of the loom
Saggin’ from the ass of the fruit of the womb.
Ashy backs and ass cracks
슬프게도, howling at the moon,
Doomed . . .
before they could learn to eat with a spoon
Consumed . . .
by the the TV room, the game room, the chat room, the classroom, and the court room
Soon they’ll be crooning a new tune
no more tongue twistin’ rap lyrics from ghetto tycoons
Just the sad old song of lost souls
trapped in a rhythm of gloom.
