Spoken Word

(Intro)
Can I get some keys?
Now let me get some hi hats.
Let me get some hi hats. Some hi hats...
And now Mr. Bass Player said where you at? ugh.
Drummer man, let me get some kicks.
Now hold on. Don't give em too much.
Now kick, ugh, kick
kick, kick, kick, kick
Now let me hear yall just groove.
Ah we cookin' now.
I hope yall don't mind me getting me getting on my artistic flow real quick.
I'ma do this one like Langston Hughes and Maya Angelou
This piece is called Spoken Word.

(Verse)
Ugh, yeah, I'll speak a spoken word, filled with broken verbs
Conjunction-junctions and spoken slurs I hope ya heard
About the homeless herd of human beings on the curb
And how we just walk by heads high no concern
We forget the grace of God we truly don't deserve
Cause our nice cars jewelry clothes coats and furs
Gives our life meaning more than his and more than hers
And collectively together means more then theirs
You see that lady there across the street with shoulders curled
With the shopping cart my homeboy used to go with her
They broke up a while ago cause she would go and flirt
With every other guy but don't judge I overheard
That when she was a girl her step dad would go berserk
And start beating her and even start choking her
She was nine years old when she finally told the nurse
How her womb got soaked in sperm
Her hear couldn't hold the hurt
And that dude in high school was the token nerd
He was real smart, he would go and learn
More then what was required so he could go and earn
A nice livin, but he started smokin' herb
Just to fit in his addiction grew he gone get served
Three blunts a day with crack cocaine till he's to stoned to burn
Both roam the earth, both could've broke the curse
If someone took the time to show them Jesus Christ's golden word
I'll speak a spoken word, filled with broken verbs,
No hors d'oeuvres, similes for dinner, metaphors for dessert
Even though you rap drugs and women, coke and skirts
And I rap kids in the hood know your worth
My hip hop can still rock, any show on the earth
Your hip hop can get shot by mine call the coroner
I'm just a foreigner with a foreign word
Lost at sea but please believe that V-T-H-O-V was born to surf
My rhymes go hard in the streets and on your turf
A flip of the pen those same rhymes can go to church
Our youth are gangster now but their to young to know the hurst
But they know some hurt I hope my music helps them grow in spurts
After they finish first or second I hope the go for third
I'll never sell them short or sell out, that's on my word
Every song I write I try to cause my dome to burst
My hot bars can stop cars and cause stars souls to burn
Remember back in the day we used to throw the nerf
Now yall sit on facebook all day poking girls
The same girls that used to be at grandma's on her nerves
Running up the light bill till she got so flustered
They grew up to be barbies so awkward
And yall grew up to be gangsters, so absurd
Don't infer, you gone observe as your boy shows the world
That my beats are cold as burr and my flow is strong as birch

(Outro)
Tell me, what happens to a dream deferred?
And why does the caged bird sing?
But most important of all, tell me,
When will we rise?
