Inner City Blues

Heard it this morning…Marvin was a prophet. I could’ve posted Mercy, Mercy Me for Earth Day, but this one is resonating more for me these days.

Rockets, moon shots
Spend it on the have nots
Money, we make it
Fore we see it you take it
Oh, make you wanna holler
The way they do my life
Make me wanna holler
The way they do my life
This ain’t livin’, this ain’t livin’
No, no baby, this ain’t livin’
No, no, no

Inflation no chance
To increase finance
Bills pile up sky high
Send that boy off to die
Make me wanna holler
The way they do my life
Make me wanna holler
The way they do my life
Dah, dah, dah
Dah, dah, dah

Hang ups, let downs
Bad breaks, set backs
Natural fact is
I can’t pay my taxes
Oh, make me wanna holler
And throw up both my hands
Yea, it makes me wanna holler
And throw up both my hands

Crime is increasing
Trigger happy policing
Panic is spreading
God know where we’re heading
Oh, make me wanna holler
They don’t understand
Dah, dah, dah

You Better Say It, Kenny!

I can not and will not lie.

Although I respected his prowess when he was on the court, I have always thought that Charles Barkley was an ignorant idiot. Thank you to Kenny Smith, for calling out his friend and colleague.
