 GARNISHMENT!  GARNISHMENT! GARNISHMENT!! 

THAT’S ALL I SEE ON A YOUNG MAN CHECK 

CHILD SUPPORT GOT ANOTHER YOUNG MAN 

ROBBING ANOTHER YOUNG MAN CHECK 

AFTER KIDS, MONEY IS WHAT KEEPS A MAN HAPPY

IN A WORLD WHERE MOST PEOPLE LIVES IN POVERTY 

LIVING BELOW THE MIDDLE CLASS, 

WHILE YOU EVERY DAY BUST YOUR ASS

AND BUST YOUR ASS

AND AGAIN, BUST YOUR ASS 

TO JUST MAKE OVER 400 – 600 A WEEK OR EVERY 2 WEEKS

WHILE YOUR BODY FEELS WEAK

SKIP EATING JUST TO FALL TO SLEEP 

WAKE UP ALL OVER AGAIN 

JUST TO BUST YOU ASS SOME MORE

KNOWING WHY YOU DO THIS.

THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN, COMES THE MAIL 

A MAIL LETTER STRAIGHT FROM HELL 

WITH A HIGH CHANCE YOUR ONE DAY MIGHT NEED TO POST BAIL. 

YOU SEE THE NAME OF THE PLAINTIFF AND THE DEFENDANT 

AS WELL AS NOTHING BUT SHEETS AFTER SHEETS

OF CRAP ONLY THE SYSTEM WOULD KNOW

DEPENDING IF YOU PAY ATTENTION 

OR COMPLAIN THAT YOUR NAME IS MENTION 

EITHER WAY IT GOES 

YOUR NAME BEEN MENTION 

BUT WHAT I DON’T FULLY GET IS

THAT WHILE THIS YOUNG  MAN 

UNLIKE OTHER MEN 

HAVE DID RIGHT BY HIS SEED 

NEVER GOT INVOLVED IN HITTING THE MOTHER

NOR EVEN SMOKING A BAG OF WEED

YET THE GOVERNMENT SAID BY LAW

SOMEONE MUST PAY FOR THE CHILD 

OR THE CHILD WON’T RECEIVE ANY BENEFITS 

I WAS ALWAYS TOLD THAT DEADBEATS DON’T DESERVE SHIT

BUT THE EYE OF THE GOVERNMENT 

YOUR A DEADBEAT THAT DON’T DESERVE SHIT

ONLY TO PAY UP FOR EXTRA SHIT 

THAT MONEY YOU SAVE FOR IMPORTANT SHIT 

HAVE BEEN REDUCED IN HALF IF NOT ALL

THAT’S THAT BULLSHIT 

BUT TO MAKE IT WORST

THEY CAN SUSPEND YOUR LICENCE 

MEANING YOU CAN’T DRIVE TO JOB 

MEANING YOUR ASS IS SCREW FROM FINDING BETTER JOBS 

MEANING YOU BETTER GET TWO OR THREE JOBS. 

THE SYSTEM RAPE US YOUNG MEN

MENTALLY DESTORYS A YOUNG MEN

MORE AT CHANCE HE’LL BE A LOCK UP YOUNG MAN

FOR BEING LATE ON SHIT. 

THE JUDGE DON’T CARE

THE SYSTEM DON’T CARE 

AND IF YOUR ON BAD TERMS WITH THE MOTHER..

OOPS, I MEAN BABY MAMA

THEN SHE WON’T FUCKIN CARE ! 

WHY SHOULD THIS YOUNG MEN 

WHO BEFORE ALL THE BULLSHIT 

PAY MORE WHEN HE WAS PAYING ALREADY?  

WHY SHOULD THIS YOUNG MEN 

GET ROB FROM A CHECK THAT WON’T GO TO HIS SEED. 

MOST LIKELY IT’S GOING TO AN AGENCY FULL OF 

BLOODSUCKERS JUST TO MAKE UP THERE SALARY.

WHY MUST THIS YOUNG MEN AND EVERY YOUNG MEN

REGARDLESS OF RACE OR RELIGION MUST SUFFER 

THE BULLSHIT CHILD SUPPORT COMES WITH 

WHEN THEY’RE ALREADY SUPPORTING THE CHILD AND /OR CHILDREN 

AND MOST OF THE TIME THE MOTHER AS WELL 

WHY ISN’T THE GOVERNMENT ASKING WHY?
