"Mannafest": A Poem

Updated on August 17, 2017

'Mannafest'

by D Shannahan

Life is really funny

It ain't nothin' funny

Plenty day not sunny

We struggle so we running

The road is old and dusty

We ramble on for one thing

Region after region

Keepin' seekin' for my freedom

(Region after region keep on seekin' for my freedom)


Life was caught

In an inner-net

Thought yous free, they tell you that

Tell you x marks the spot

All these maps I bought

But still it's hard to find

and still I find it hard

To align my heart

With a profoundly unhealthy world

Soon I pray the galaxy bring me back in from the cold

(To align my heart

With a profoundly unhealthy world

Soon I pray the galaxy bring me back y'all)

Inner wealth get the money

It's a mannafest of the rest

From the sky watch it falling


Inner wealth keep fed yeah

Only mannafest the best

Cut the stress keep it burnin'


Inner wealth get money

It's a mannafest the rest

From the sky watch it falling


Inner wealth keep fed yeah

Only mannafest the best

Fuck the rest keep on earnin'

Sittin' at a table with the clouds and the city

I ain't mind nothin' just us in the atmosphere

Some fool with a rhyme and a nylon string yeh

I define my mind with a chisel and an eighth of weed

Life is really funny

It ain't nothin funny

Stained with the curse of the days life was burnin me

Learned from the struggle and the pain so we turned kings

Chambers of the mind

We travel on for one thing


Inner wealth I'm the money

Manna fallin' from the sky like rain

Collect as much as u can

Face the pain dog He's callin you out by name

Ancient scriptural - beyond time it's mystical

Now approaching midnight I drop in the lyrical

Energy hits your physical it's a miracle

The clock on the wall reads ya worst nightmare

Hysterical laughter - followed by intense waves of drastic fear

Couldn't find an ambulance that could drive anywhere near

Inner wealth get the money

It's a mannafest of the rest

From the sky watch it falling


Inner wealth keep fed yeah

Only mannafest the best

Cut the stress keep it burnin'


Inner wealth get money

Its a mannafest the rest

From the sky watch it falling


Inner wealth keep fed yeah

Only mannafest the best

Fuck the rest keep on earnin'
