title: Truth Covered

I’m not a gangster but if you were smart you wouldn’t look at me as a joke like I’m some sort of prankster. You might find yourself flanked by a right hook with your head stirred. Worrying about where the next dollar came from left my priorities blurred. So while people talk as you say tell them if they want I can make they’re words slurred. Meth, pills, and heroin left me in need of a heroine. I may have got clouded but that loyalty never found itself lost with the pigs in there muddy pin. When your vision clears you’ll see I was the one with my lips sown shut in the end. Until then remember your claim of brother as you let them keep your eyes covered.
