I ain’t no burn cat
but this day I’d been ghosted
by me bitch – no show
an’ I needed snout bad.
So I look out in de echo
when we walking around.
De damn sweeper he bin creeping,
seeking it all out. I had me jammer
up against him, he squealing.
appealing, me get no banging out.
We hench from de weights –
Eighters doing bird all de years.
De kangas they had me in bend up,
in rub down, in bang up, damn quick.
Don’t want the marga nicker to preach me –
he can’t teach me nufink.
He gon’ tell de ol’ vanilla an’ I get no jam.
No wonder I de winda warrior screaming at the world.
