In Threes

Dees ain’t nu’in but cornrows
Same kine we used ta hide okra seeds
Peas pulled back smooth
Naps gone hidin’ uppunda my fangas
Pass present future
Pass present future
Pass present future
Jess keep on like dat
Till it git ta da en
Den start ahgin
Pass present future
On down da line
She thankin bout gettin up
Off dis porch
On wit huh life
I’m thankin
Pass present future
We gone get deah, baby
An you gone luh what you
En up wit
I’mma see to it
