Change Of Possession

Chock full in their rhymes are chimes about homicide
Out of their minds, not realizing that it's fratricide
Assisted genocide designed to stop the rise of a Black Messiah  
So many Judas, truth is that we're under constant fire  
 
Wish I could inspire a change in the game to stop the fumbling  
We're constantly losing possession of lives and it's demoralizing  
Downright depressing how we're declining with each buck  
The sound of the weapon as more melanin gets chucked  
 
I'm stuck with a bucket of fucks that I philanthropically give  
I fear that I may become niggardly because caring is rather expensive  
Labor intensive on the physical, mental and emotional capital  
Fleeting in feeling is he that proceeds to be stoical & apathetical  
 
I've got to be mathematically geometrical about this hypotenuse  
Before the cerebral screws that I still have come completely loose  
Sometimes it seems of little use to cope by hanging onto ailing hope  
As the youth and blue troops keep dangling more fruits from ropes

Found out this morning that a young man that I know is fighting for his life in the ICU after being shot in his neck. This World seems to be so hopeless. Mass shootings, police sanctioned murders, hue on hue crimes. It's all a repetitive cycle. The powers that be have us so at odds with each other over trivial things that this is never going to end until humanity reaches its demise.
