Inspiration can come in the form of a bag stuck in a tree.

A black bag stuck in a tree waving like a flag.
Kids texting on phones call out “nigger.”
A Mexican cowboy played for no money.
A drunk man got on the train,
he was lost in Queens.

Oooh.

I am wasting away on this platform.
I am walking the same shoes as my father.
The 7 appears in the sky like a savior.
Another day I will try to make it better.

Oooh.
