“With Superbly devised, Super fly advised, Charged flow, You can't beat with, A bongo, Enacts, More action, Than that, To lift, Forty year embargoes, Better written, Than graffiti scrolls, Sprayed with aerosol, These song notes, More welcomed suburb to ghetto, Than trains passing, Through the metro!”
