god is a woman
let me just get that out the way 😉
i caught the tail end of an interrogation one time
the woman was in the process of having the victim repeat his guilt before signing away his life
but outta the blue she was like
you love me?
and the victim immediately responded, you and yuh sistuh
completely broken and afraid
me and me sistuh?
yea baby i love you and yuh sistuh
i gon let dat pass like i ain even hear you. sign this paper hey
he signs and mutters a little prayer
sometimes the man know he telling the truth and she lying
but in the name of peace he ain goin deh
silence is golden
yuh done confess what’s the point?
the other day we watching football and a man disturb the air with his relationship blah
