What's Popin?*

The story that goes untold  
politicians are bought and sold  
  
At least one would sell their soul  
for cash-new bills or old  

So tell me what's pop-in  
these gangs we're not stop-in  
kids like flies dead are drop-in  
ain't even safe go shop-in  
   
these rappers using Words of Mass Distortion  
blowing things out of portion  
 
how much more will it take  
before the people will awake  
   
So tell me what's pop-in  
these gangs we're not stop-in  
kids like flies dead are drop-in  
ain't even safe to go shop-in  
   
*Dedicated to the memory of Gil Scott Heron

I wrote this back in 2013. I took out lines that related to then and left the lines that are still true sadly today-almost ten years later!!!!
