In the ghetto


It’s like a jungle

all we do is hustle

all we do is struggle

playing a bugle

It’s hard to be single

though we be strangers as we mingle

hoping not to strangle

sharing jokes as we giggle

Food prices be high so we haggle

Perfecting the art so we smuggle

our ears on the police so they wiggle

Nights so cold and our bodies tingle

As we look out for those who seek to burgle

Written and signed with a squiggle!
