POOR MAN MESSIAH / Poetry

// On copywriters // In HipHop

Poor man Messiah
Has he a message for you.
Poor man Messiah
Has he a page for you.

Willing to a flophouse
Nine to Five
Looking for a hit
In your high five.

Poor man Messiah
Poor poor man Messiah
Looking to fly solo
Never to look down
For people he must follow.

Poor man Messiah
Poor poor man Messiah
The lowman, the slowman.
Every shivery man.
The one with the span of a fly fan.
Just won’t let him be a show man.
You ain’t in this alone man.

Poor man Messiah
Poor poor man Messiah
Lost in a crowd of voices too loud.
Push comes to shove
and takes out his love.

Poor man Messiah
Poor poor man Messiah
Not the hero they wanted.
The one they deserve.
Chop, change.
Nip, tuck.
Cut to size
In a minute of silence
His message they observe.

Poor man Messiah
Poor poor man Messiah
Had he a page for you.
