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
