PRICE

The Price we pay in Philly.
Not listed in the NY stock Exchange
Nor traded in the fed reserves.
 Missing on Wawa food shelves.
The price we pay in Philly
The blood of young men
Caught up in the chaos of black struggle
Heard on the Evening news
Read in the Morning papers.
The price we pay in Philly
The rattle of the L train
Smooth riders during games
Jump boys on the stands
Dashiki boy passing trade
The price we pay in Philly 
Mayor Nutter rolling the corporate joint.
Counties feasting on Taxes delight.
Municipalities high on parking tickets.
The price we pay in Philly
Sex education in 3D
16s. parents on my front yard.
19s. The new red army.

Modern Warfare extended.
