Do not go to the Trap house

Do not go to the Trap house on 25th for there are 4 of them.

There’s no way to avoid streets that make short cuts through town, just keep driving.

Do not hang out in places where you know drugs will be.

But do go to clinics where they are prescribed.

Do not joke of using, for you too can be used.

Do not follow people, cause they can follow you.

Do not jump into a river, ’cause the river is moving too.

Do not waste time hating other people, show love, and they envy you.
