An addiction can assume many forms. Most recently, I have spent lots of intellectual work on my obsession with finding and defining my efforts plot a path towards a relationship of value. It’s been lots of words: ethics – ranting on and on about evil – reciprocity and process the following is a lot more fun. In 2004, Russell Simmons produced Def Poetry, on August 8, Poetri performed “Money”.
His words captures what fun one can have confronting his addiction. We all can stand to have a little fun….
My money has been acting funny lately all I ever did was love her! maybe too much! 'cause now it's like we ain't cool no more I got more than a hunch she's playing me trying to make me jealous, hanging out with other fellas always in some other brother's pocket! I try and tell her those other guys are just using her! "The just using you money!!!" she don't wanna hear me she won't even return my phone calls! she doesn't even stop by the crib like she used to she wont' eve go to the movies with me she won't even go get noting to eat! and you know a brother can't eat...without money! there's only so much bread and water I can take. call me spoiled. I remember the days when people used to see us at the hottest clubs the expensive restaurants, all the high priced stores I made sure I looked good with money! I treated you right! I never abused you! Did I? Money, did I abouse you? did I get used to you hanging around and now you're giving me a taste of what it feels like to live without you? People still thing we're tight they still ask about you. Ever since Money hasn't been around I feel like I'm losing my other friends too American Express. Visa, Discover, now they're acting starting to act shady! I think she's spreading lies on me! I tell you I don't know what I did but my money's been acting funny lately and I don't know her anymore and my life ain't the same never will be the same until Money comes back into my life so if you see her or any of her cousins let her know that I miss her I love her, and want her to come home.
