from one who knows


Hi!
Let's get high!
Get in the car,
come share a jar.
Come down the street
and feel the beat.
The heat's with me.
No comedy!
Let's go meet
that guy what stole your money...
and see what we shall see.
Don't think I'm being funny.
He sees cash
and he feels rash.
You gamble it away.
Instead, don't play.
No way Jose!
That's how he makes his dough,
so tell him straight and tell him No!
He takes no rap,
don't be the sap.
He got a stash
of others' cash.
He tell you piss.
You ask: How did it get like this?
The man is bent,
he aint a gent.
Investors never work like this,
'cos this aint bliss.
They meets their agent
face to face.
This man's an absolute disgrace!
A disgrace to the human race.
A waste of space, the likes of him.
Don't let your chance go dim
of meeting face to face again!
So use your brain,
go find a guy who's in the grain.
These days it's pulses down the wires,
no one inquires
what gives,
what lives
now all's computerised.
Nothing now goes past your eyes.
That's why it all goes belly up
and you is left with the sour cup.
Surprise, surprise?
I'm sorry guy,
but that's the way it is,
the way it goes,
that's as she blows!
From one who knows.

You rap with style.

What a surprise, Yes, I don't know much about rap, but this sounds in that line and gives nobility to it.
Eloquent rhymes, with immediate force.

I could imagine this set to rap music Dave. LOL
Well wrapped ;)

Brian Miller said...

haha very nice rhythm man and nice story telling within it as well...i like your bit of a moral there in the end as well....way to lay it down man...

Mary said...

Enjoyed the different style you used with this poem! You could rap with the best of 'em!

manicddaily said...

Great rapping! Maybe with a bit more moralizing than some! (Not in a bad way.) Good story-telling too. You are very versatile. k.

Ygraine said...

Never been a great fan of rap myself, but this I could dance to!
I really like the bit of moral in there. Rap is often totally lacking in that department, so for me, you've revolutionised it here.
Very well done:)

This staccato rap boost, I can almost sing in unison! A clever rhythmic twist from your usuals. Cool Dave!

I love this jaunty piece. Even your 'nonsense' is erudite!
