For Miles and Miles.

While on the Metro today:

A young guy, probably a teenager, sitting by himself. His headphones are turned up so loud that everyone on the train can hear the music he is listening too. He closes his eyes and raps along out loud to the song.

I really feel that if we tune it, it just might get picked on
Or will it give a fuck about what others say and get gone
The alienators cause we different keep your hands to the sky
Like Sounds of Blackness when I practice what a preach ain't no lie
I'll be the baker and the maker of the piece of my pie
Now breaker, breaker 10-4 can I get some reply?

Strapped to his chest in a BabyBjorn carrier is a small infant dressed in a pink fleece jacket. As he raps, she giggles and they both smile at each other.

I see all this on the Metro today and I know that it will make me smile every time I think about it for the rest of the week.

Throw your hands in the ay-er and wave 'em like you just don't cay-er.
If you like fish and grits and all that pimp shit, everybody let me hear you say oh yay-er!
