"The Equalizer"
By Derrick Brown
11-11-2016

i'm no mad dude
in a bad mood
with this attitude
that's kinda rude

on some wacky trip
that's chopped & screwed
au contraire mon frere
i'm sharing aptitude

i ask of you
with gratitude
to extend me some
fair latitude

to go in on this
one beatitude
and ride the beat
after this prelude

the meek shall
inherit the earth
don't get it twisted

that day will come
when all of our worth
simply persisted

nobody's bout 2 square
up the game
that has consisted

of rules that fools
invented to maim
the unassisted

so what to do?
who can i blame?
i'm blacklisted!

... no rescue
no help for the lame
- never existed

but here's a clue
- we all are the same
essence insisted

our function's where
we gotta take aim
and get enlisted

bounce with me
open ya mind
c'mon wise up

comprehend
system design
then rise up

power ain't
never conceded
by the conceited

concessions ain't
never meted
'cause u tweeted

work ...
can generate
creativity

hope ...
can correlate
positivity

care
err
correct
share

run your race
pass the baton
so we get "there"

start ...
right where ya "be"
then know that

haters
"they can't c me"
then show that

purpose
can overtake
ambition

change
begins and ends
tradition

now
it's time to share
my identity

some
say that i am
a different entity

skills
earned my nickname
i go by "swizzy"

shoe fits
and it's my aim
to keep 'em busy

for so long
I've prayed to see
a vision

of my
people set free
collision

with the
powers that be
decision

take my best shot
and don't miss
precision

see the scale
unequally yoked
i'll tip it

drop a beat
that gets me stoked
I'll rip it

in it to win
it all
day and night

grace and
peace to y'all and
a good fight


Love,

Daddy
