CYCLOPS ROAD

CYCLOPS ROAD

A Poem by Baby Ricochet
"

I actually wrote something kids.

"

Riding shotgun with a Cyclops 
Who's talking s**t at lights 
He rides a pimped out Escalade 
His sick rims rolling tight 

Bird dogging b*****s on the fly 
His player's wagging tongue 
He knows where all the good s**t is 
He's down with everyone

Chews blunts between his golden teeth 
He hits a metal pipe 
His Cabin's full of booming bass 
The east coast gangsta type

Cruise the streets with derelicts 
This town of dying light 
Where kids flip burgers in a pen
or twenty years to life 

The crack w***e paradise night life
of ethnic urban blight 
The world the Cyclops wanders in 
It was his birthright plight 

Cyclops one eye on the rear view
A prowler's flashing lights 
The White Knights get suspicious 
of Cyclops out at night 

White Knights search for contraband 
Cyclops gives attitude 
They want to take his Escalade 
Cyclops to be subdued 

A filthy Cyclops isn't human 
or so the white knight said 
He pulled out his chrome revolver
and shot the cyclops dead 

Cyclops dead eyed on the asphalt 
Blood pouring from his skin 
He wanted this one victory
But white knights always win 

The limelight comes to fade away 
On lookers wander home 
Cyclops left to dead end streets
Forever he will roam

Thank you. It's one of my faves
How did I miss this? The streets are under their own siege. There is a war going on out there and sometimes it's hard to identify who all the bad guys are. Good one Baby.

Wow this was deep, a life lived in a way we might judge to no good end but a death not worth a second, not now, not then, then when?

Thanks keegan. This one's a fave of mine.
painted picture of harsh reality for so many.. I see this too often in my city streets... dang hood rats, and power hungry egotistical cops who take s**t too far.. both show up in my ER and play the victim, but which one is the bad guy?
