Drug Paved Streets

Ghetto streets paved with drugs and guns,
Funded by the same government
Who kills off our young boys and men
or puts them in jail then throws away the key

Money makes the world go round
Guns can’t shoot themselves
Your government is the real criminals
Arrest them

Perfectly placed in those neighborhoods
To destroy the people, the youths
They don’t have a future; they live and die
By the streets, they were born in the hood
they are fed bullets and drugs.

  1. I agree with the first blogger; I do a poetry corner every Friday on my blog and I would like to reblogged this work. It is a good poem with a warning that a lot of times isn’t heard. To me the drug war in this country has been the biggest joke and hindrance towards the populace.
