Short Of A Dime

by Anthony J. Mungin

A brother was on the corner
Trying to get through a tough time
When, trying loot
He dropped a dime
Another brother spotted him
From up the street
He was dressed in nice threads
And looking oh so sweet
So he wanted no part
And had no time
Especially since he was not
this brother's partner in crime
He went back to his 
Of course in the Hills
And continued making
Hundred dollar bills
When in his ear he heard wind chimes
Fore he saw that brother
That was short a dime
The brother was in his prime
He had nice lyrics and oh, he could rhyme

"All I needed was a little of your time
To prevent long suffering
From my crime
When you turn your back
More was at stake
Cause the one you dissed
Is still out on the take
And now you're taken
From your place and time
Cause you crossed a brother who was short of a dime"
