I am sure they have different perceptions,
About how to do things right.
I am a ghetto baby.
Not a surburbanite!
I’ve experienced people leeching,
Off backs to get an easy ride.
Telling others what they do for the poor.
And without them,
They wouldn’t have those lives to criticize.
Or make a buck.
To act stuck up!
OR plant fat butts on toilets…
To get through,
And publicly turn their backsides!
I am sure they have different perceptions,
About success and how that appears.
How it looks to them…
When they drive in expensive cars,
Snearing at the ‘lowly’…
And being the snobs they are!
But one thing comes to them,
That is unavoidable.
And that is very clear.
Their activities in the past decades now gone…
Has brought them much regret and tears!

I am sure they have different perceptions,
About how to do things right.
So many of them now appear in ‘ghettos’…
Attempting to correct,
Their damaged ‘insights’
With a refreshened appetite…
To enlighten themselves with a higher consciousness.
Devoid of an absence of arrogance.
And befriend the ‘ghetto-ites’ of blight they incited!
Bringing offerings to share…
A newfound diet they like!
