The Rarest Commodity (FF 88)

from Freestyle Friday Vol. 1 by Philo Reitzel



Don’t follow me, follow your own odyssey
True genius is usually dismissed as oddity
I try to place people above material property
But to a point honesty is the rarest commodity
Live by the gun, perish by policy
More accurately perish by poverty inequality
Paradoxically the biggest crooks run monopolies
Money stretched out with commas and apostrophes
Sonically, I’m trying a few things
I do it every day as if I’m tying my shoestrings
I won’t align with a ruse, I paid dues
Follow my muse and keep my gold tooth clean
Teeth. They say death is the cousin of sleep
Truth be told I hope to grow old and go counting sheep
Unique soundwaves from the depths of the deep
Treat our goals like mountains hope you climb every peak
