Tree People

Cursing like a sailors
Telling lies
And more lives
And more lies
Until the lies run out,
The drinks run dry
And when the drinks run dry
The people dwindle away
The tree gets empty
And then silence is heard.
No cussing
And telling lies
Talking trash
And evil kicks in
But hold on there partner!
What will this benefit them?
What lessons are being learned?
The drinking of the '40
And the gin and juice
And the prophet-lying and
Crucifying each other
Telling what 2 kiss
How 2 kiss and kiss my---
Need I say if the Good Lord comes back now?
What will you say?
"Well I was at the tree Lawd just chillin'."
And when He say He don't know you
Then What?
