Ain't Got Nothing


Dis ain't about soundin good, smellin sweet, rhymin well, lookin neat, feelin smooth, being cliche, or spreading news.

Dis ain't no poem, no letter, no song, no haiku, it aint got no form, and it ain't no essay.

Dis ain't to long, too short, too boring, too wrong, too right, too fat, too skinny, or too cool.

Dis ain't for you, for me, for them, for us, for him, for her, or for you plural.

Dis ain't got sad, got happy, got mad, got rad, got lonley, got friendly, got dumb, and it ain't got frustrated.

Dis ain't got notthin and it ain't eva gunna.
