Playing the Game of Life

Bounce from left to right, then pass.
Can’t play unless you talk trash.
Went to jump and got knocked down.
Need to focus on what’s around.

On the court, from side to side
Run so fast it’s like a slide.
Don’t stay on the court too late —
You’ll get faced with lots of hate.

Going up for a lay-up
Close to the end, it’s a dub!!
Can’t walk without people’s looks
Comparing me to those crooks.

I think I’m a human being,
But people’s eyes constantly beaming.
