I got that home grown, I don’t care about the dow jones,
the economy could crash tonight and your whole life savings wouldn’t save your life.
I’m a crop farmer, I got what you need / but I ain’t blowing smoke when I say I grow trees,
it’s funny this economy is based on greed / but people don’t farm who got mouths to feed,
Some folks save money, I save seeds / I don’t water my lawn or spray weeds,
the money I do spend on watering crops I give right back ‘cause I don’t shop for groceries,
I got breakfast lunch and dinner in the yard / so that recession ain’t hitting me as hard,
Plus I grows exponentially / What? The Wall Street Journal never mentioned me?
See I’m a city boy, all the way urban / but I ain’t going out like the Pharaoh’s servants / To eat they sold the land and cattle for cheap / then they gave their bodies up to the forty hour week / In the city where pity runs low / You can’t grow food in a loft an apartment or a condo / so now you work for the dollar and man / when all you needed was sun air water and land / they think they own the water and land but they confused / God is billing them for what they charge me to use / if they could sell air and sunlight they would / We’d suffocate and every day would be night up in the hood but it’s all good….
One seed and I get a tree or a whole vine / tens or even hundreds of fruit at one time / so while the dollar bill steadily losing its strength / I got enough food to feed ten families on my fence / enough melons to make farmers out of felons / Turn gangsters into gardeners / ’cause now they smart enough to keep the system from starving us / They ain’t dropout they know the math on which seeds and which stars is up / We goin back to the old ways except / We technologically and metaphysically adept / Yep like in the ancient times when we could speak / with animals ’cause they was kin and they wasn’t meat / Y’all wanna eat??
