Here I am again...San Jose CA. My stay is temporary, thankfully.
The SF Bay Area where the roads are rough, jobs are tough and most everyone has had enough.
While I mean no disrespect, I find the city's neglect of the roadways filled with ruts and potholes are due to pure neglect.
I can't imagine how I could stay without enough rent money to pay
and the crime rate and gang state is more evident than I can say
If I could afford it, I'd retire myself to the Oregon Coast
I'd dig clams and fish for my supper and scramble to the beaches to make the most
But here I am in San Jose, without a place of my own to stay
I'm thankful though, for the African folks who've taken me in with open hearts and without delay
So, yes, here I am eating Cassava Leaf Soup, rice and fried yam
Oh how lucky and grateful I am!
