Inktober #1 - Stranger Times
AKA Run Run Run Away Rona
I'm in a... strange place.
Though I'd keep going way past the last race but I didn't but that's okay!
Cause I'm... still here.
And I thought I'd do the same thing as last year - just sing and rap yeah.
Everyday just have faith
That I don't catch the rona! Gotta sit in like my phone now hold the line and get a tone up!
It's been a... strange age.
Get déjà vu... of the Spanish flu... wait that was before my parents had boned
And I didn't have a name. Wasn't known; had no know-how
No I don't remember!
But the past glows with outspoken ember!
Saying don't you ever!
Forget about the past and keep your vocals tender so you can show your splendor!
And grow and enter!
The game and make some dough so you can enroll some mentors
And never ever be a fold but center!
Let go; get better! I better show I'm regular!
Not jump out totally or I'd know I'd be
At least happier then when I'm working 24/7 not knowing sleep.
Corona times? Best you don't compete!
I'm in a... strange way.
The world seems the same, the end of days always coming so don't waste.
The time you have. Get out and party hard! Go on a safari march!
Me? I can hardly part with summer.
Season ends and it's a bummer, but I'll get into this shit and never quit and give y'all thunder,
So forget about all that! Move on and don't go back!
This fall finna be hard but March will come with dawns a cracking!
Never lacking rhymes I'm packing time for action!
I'm never slacking on my grind till I grow rashes!
Lubed up and fast, y'all down in the molasses!
Get revitalized! Get some coconut calabashes!
What passes as rap these days is embarrassing,
But we're managing, real raw talent amassing in masses in,
These streets, so we can topple all the mannequins,
You don't need a pose, you need prose, you need pad and pen.
And something to say, a story, something to play to,
To relate to, some kind of wisdom that has people saved!
The world is dark and depraved, hardly a better place,
Than in the harder days! We're growing alarmingly frail so hey
Don't stray. This pandemic finna blow away.
Become a piece of history the future wizardry won't even know huh?
Run run run away rona. I'm hopeful. Might be over as fast as... whenever I finally grow up.
