Man’s Best Friend by Demitri Tyler

Love you like a dog

Take you home

Train your potty mouth

Teach you how to sit and stay

Like an old shaggy dog

I love you

Leash you to my ways

Tie you to my ways

I throw scraps into your bowl

You throw loyalty my way

My best friend

I love you

Like a dog

Took you home

Trained your potty mouth

Made you my domestic thing

Funny what we call love nowadays

His talents as a rapper formed his early years gaining him recognition as mc to watch in underground circles with performances at the Upper Room the cities hottest poetry/rap venue at the time as well as his activism in and around the community and state college campuses.
