Filthy pendulum

I reverse like filth
attached to a new born missile
I will never speak to you god
save from surfing the internet
and shaking Richard Branson's hand
and if you died, you make an old
white lady fit for a coffin
and too many black boys are lost
like 50 cent. There's no map to that
coffin but there's traffic. I reverse
the day my cock lost it's hunger.

Foul pendulum, you waver indecisively
between time, you are neither day
or hour, your minutes on jet skis
are cut short by the judges decision.
Pendulum beware. An infant you've
encouraged, an entourage I've left
behind me, the day you fell to pieces
in a hurricane

You make time wrestle with
the speed of sound, you make the day
question it's position and the French
fix genders to objects, Like the sea.

Try a little salt water, I'm still wet
from all your questions...

Why would they
not know about this
creature? How,
with all the technology
known to man
has this animal
escaped the
menu?

I'm honest to gravity.
My face has never lied to the ground.
Many have poured their hearts out on
concrete,
,over rap beats
I drum an example, however
sample me snoring, loop
my imagination, program
my dreams, race me to
the time machine.

This is a damn good tribute to hip hop, Jaie, though I can't tell if that's your intention. Hip hop is, in my opinion, one of the strongest forms of self-expression we have going lately -- good hip hop, anyways (ATCQ and the like) -- and this last stanza says that wonderfully.

jaie ===== you have given discharge such an interesting twist. a flavour of the street. of hip hop and rap. i got a bit fed up with hip hop circa '98/99 as it seemd that all we heard was comercial stuff. no problem at with with commercial music BUT that stuff then was so dire. you write well. i like it.
