Wig and nail shops profit soar in the hood

Fancy car rims profit hold steady in the hood

Gun shops profit through the roof in the hood

Fake Muslim liquor jumping off the shelves in the hood

God’s churches like fast food chains in the hood

Mortuary profits still a sound investment in the hood


The war on us for moving their drugs ongoing in the hood

Still no stimulus in the hood

No leaders in the hood

No love


Just the sound . . .

The awful breaking sound
