The Poetry of RUN-D.M.C.

Run-D.M.C.

I’m celebrating national poetry month and the great music of 1984. These lyrics are courtesy of the great RUN-D.M.C from their self-titled debut album.

 

 

 

 

Unemployment at a record high

People coming, people going, people born to die

Don’t ask me, because I don’t know why

But it’s like that, and that’s the way it is

———————————————————

One thing I know is that life is short

So listen up homeboy, give this a thought

The next time someone’s teaching why don’t you get taught

It’s like that (what?) and that’s the way it is!
