OFF THE CHARTS

this is the place

in the black and white connections.

love to think in the grays.

just can’t help that

as it takes a little bit of shark

as a saturated bard

in the arcs

coming from the swamp

just romping around

in what brings happiness,

in concoct a poem

in leave another trademark

in the benchmarks,

pounding with the fists

to let you know

i’m hanging around my storefront

as if photoshopped

with a little camouflage.

it’s just the way it goes

in these parts

as nothing is ever so simple

when dealing with a black and white crowd,

in the coming at it straight

without ever knowing the costs

in just the way it goes

living in the greater erie area,

in the it takes forever

when dropping it off the charts.
