Poem: "My Name Is Cocaine"

Beware, my friends, my name is Cocaine, Coke for short, or the Rock...
I entered this country without a passport,
Ever since then I've been hunted and sought.

I'm more valued than diamonds, more treasured than gold.
Use me just once and you too will be sold,
I'll make a school boy forget his books,

I'll make a beauty queen neglect her looks,
I'll take a renown speaker and make him a bore,
I'll take your mama and make her a whore,
I'll make a school teacher forget how to teach,
I'll make a preacher not want to preach.

All kinds of people have fallen under my wing,
Just look around, you can see the results of my sting,
I've got daughters turning on their mothers,
I've got sisters robbing their brothers,
I've got burglars robbing the lord's house,
I've got husbands pimping their spouse.

I'm the King of Crime and the Prince of Destruction
I'll cause the organs of your body to malfunction,
I'll cause your babies to be born hooked,
I'll turn the most honest of men into crooks,
I'll make you rob, steal and kill
When you're under my power, you have no will.

I've destroyed actors, politicians, and sports heroes
I've decreased bank accounts from millions to zero
I'm a bad habit, too tuff for the man,
I've caused the law to invest in the battering-ram.

Well, now, you know, what will you do?
Remember, my friend, it's all up to you?
If you decide to jump in my saddle, you better ride me well.
For on the white horse of Cocaine, I'll ride you straight to hell!
