Instant Bum (Poem)

If you want to be an instant bum Survive by being a hoe Sell your jewels, your car and then your home Your baby’s diapers and your daughter’s clothes If you want to compromise your sexuality for just one more Waste your life away in hallways and bathroom stalls People please until you forget who you are Leave your Mama wondering when she’s gonna get that call If you want to block the blessings that present you everyday Diss the Angels who pray for your recovery Live your life like the Earth ain’t crying out in pain A waste of space in a world gone insane Go ahead Let your disease talk you into one more run But if you don’t pick up You cant get high And you won’t be an instant bum
