Some people talk about “The Crunch” I feel I’ve been there more than most.
When you’ve done half a brick
In the local slammer
You might know what nitro means
When you’ve injected
You’re getting closer
When you’ve told some of your story
You’re getting warmer
When you’ve gone toe to toe
In the middle of a cell
You’re getting close
When you’ve walked on the highway
Been hit by a semi-trailer
You’re almost there
And when you’ve broken the hearts
Of everyone you once knew
You will know what nitro means
And live like there’s no tomorrow
The wild style makes me smile
And I live like a man
Who knows what nitro means
The concept for this poem is taken from a song by The Offspring, before they started making commercial garbage. I really have done all these things and I try to live with the possibility of it all being over close to my heart and hence make the absolute most of this life I have been blessed not to lose.
