When Joe debated his book
mhdashraf

I welcome the B ,double O and the K,
 1
Tyrants  takin' over my room today,
 2
(book)"Hey Kid, come study! yes? nay?"
 3
(me)   -Nay? language like that is so passe'
 4
(book)" I hold your future, don't throw me away"
 5
(me) -You're trippin', God owns that....okay!!
 6
(book)"Look at you retreating, hair turning so grey"
 7
 
 
(me)-Tempt me and black ashes you'll stay
 8
(book)"The brave contemplates the attempted slay!"
 9
(me)-you want a peice of me, come, make my day
 10
 
 
(book)"A threat on deaf ears by anger is spoken"
 11
(me) - Consider it a warnin', not a mere token
 12
(book)"You dare threaten me, when I can break you!"
 13
(me) - Break is not what I fear, What I fear is the screw
 14
(book)" The screw? Education wasted, a mind gone to shambles"
 15
(me)- Ur right, my speech has turned to rambles
 16
 
 
(book) " Lol, brb, abbreviations so many....
 17
             By teenagers with vocabulary so petty....
 18
             So sad "I" can't be turned to letters
 19
             Words I'll remain, The best of the better...."
 20
(me) - B to the double O, K ur whack
 21
          I ain't got time for you, so get off my back
 22
      Chillin' with my homies, what we seek is the slack
 23
         Wisdom, knowledge is useless crack
 24
          The light of education to us is black
 25
           And "you" , you're going back on the rack!!!
 26

This pretty much summarises how after pulling an all nighter, you'll probably hallucinate having this sick debate while your bed seduces you in the background with warm sheets.

i love the Book's voice :)
so sad but true the story in lines 17-26; the first half of the poem so much reminded me of Shakespeare's dialogs. brilliant!

To " nisetru", I can't tell you how many time I've debated my book.....he always sounds like some self righteous prick .....goody two shoes........knows what's best moron...........I'm glad someone out there enjoys hearing a poem about him being out classed in a debate. I am grateful for your comment.

To all the rest who commented.....thank you.

For all the others who haven't read it.............you are missing a chance at pay back!!!
