People Don’t Be Having No Money

People don’t be having no money,
Poppin’ bottles, wining and dining,
Trying to pay with a Mastercard that keeps on declining.

People don’t be having no money,
Sporting Michael Kors and Coach bags,
On food stamps and Section 8,
But driving ‘round in a Jag,
Can’t pay bills on time,
But be the first in line,
When the government’s giving handouts,
Talkin ‘bout, “I gotta get mine”,
Riding around with no insurance and a year old temp tag,
Image looking good but credit looking bad.

People don’t be having no money,
Staying at five star hotels,
Maintaining their hair and nails,
Broke as a joke but you can’t tell,
On top of the latest trends,
Boasting and bragging to friends,
Trying to keep up with the Joneses,
But the Joneses got ends.

People don’t be having no money,
Taking trips around the world,
Maxing out credit cards,
Buying diamonds and pearls,
Don’t miss a Black Friday,
But red in their accounts,
Gas tank on “E”,
And ‘bout to get put out.

People don’t be having no money,
But like to have their way,
Living from paycheck to paycheck,
Barely making it through each day,
Living large at all costs,
Steady taking a loss,
Do yourself a favor,
And quit showing off.

You ain’t got no money,
But if you have any sense,
Take that little bit you have,
And make an in-vest-ment.

In short, I'm a work of ART (Ability, Responsibility, & Tranquility). My goal is to Attract, Retain, and Teach an audience between the ages of 14 to about 50 and beyond the disciplines of life. I've been blessed with the gift of giving knowledge and creating peace within the souls of many who are starving for spiritual satisfaction. I'm no prophet, but I do believe that I am one of God's chosen spiritual leaders and sources of information on how to walk a straight path down a crooked road.
