Sometimes people ask me,
“Do you know who you are?”
I say,
“Naw, man! Do you know who you are?”
“No,” they say to the ground.
I say back to them,
“don’t be troubled! It’ll all be OK.”

Other days, people ask to play a game.
“What game?” I ask.
They say,
” We already are playing it.”

I once heard a man say,
“I am no crook!”
Pointing to his shoulder, I asked,
“Then what is that bag full of lies, deceit, and other people’s trust?”
