dakarai cobb - The Poetic Chump

OK fellow soupers, sit back and relax;
I'm about to smash this "SAMURAI" with the "AFRO."
So with this POETIC ANTHRAX,
watch how I poison him with my sick FLOW.

dakarai your slams are for the city dump.
I wouldn't dare get beat by no poetic chump!

dakarai open this surprise envelope,
and enjoy what I now have to say.
I'm picking up that "SOAP,"
and I'm throwing it back your way!

"Inmate this" and "inmate that"
Your slam was a hit and miss for I'm a Poetic Acrobat!
Come on dude I expected something new.
Show some "gratitude" that I'm even "slamming" with you!

Soupers know you "bit" off "P.D.,"
because she first mentioned the "SOAP!"
Where's the originality?
Let me just tell you your horoscope...

Today is the day that you have extreme bad luck.
For you're finally being hit by a poetic MACK TRUCK!

I see I have you mad,
because I said you and Chris like to dry-hump!
I'm crash landing on your heliopad -
You poetic chump!

You mentioned "G.I. Joe,"
A 'cartoon' - go figure!
You say you're "Rambo,"
But why am I pulling this trigger?

"Boy," you don't "shine," I've distinguished your "shark."
So you FRANKENSTEIN, enjoy the dark!

You say you "blessed my soul" like the "Pope" in Rome.
Give me a drum roll as I take these shots to your dome!

You say "My pen moves too slow"
Chump I focus on other stuff too.
I'm getting Billy-the-kid to shave that afro,
because I'm not soley thinking about you!

I'm leaving your "writing hand" a bloodied stump.
I wouldn't get beat by no poetic chump!

Ok forget "slam," we can ask soupers who's the better poet - you or me?
They can have a poll for the Romeo and Troll (who writes the best poetry!)

    All poetry is Art whether people like it or not! Go with the flow yo! The lyrical prune juice is known to let "stuff" slide out.

    Not really being into slams it's hard for me to judge the better slammer..both are good always Jimmy you have been very creative in your slams so maybe you have the edge.But as others have said I much prefer your other very gifted writes..Love,Deb

    Warlock (yeah I got your name right this time), I enjoyed slamming with you because your literary ego is just like mine. You believe that you are the best, and I believe that I am the best. As the old saying goes, "Steel sharpens steel." Slamming forces you to be quick witted and creative. Most people are more comfortable with doing the same old thing. By the way, I was on the Pub but I did not see anything that kept my interest so I left. I am looking for some hip hop battle sites. Know of any?

    Well, I guess this marks the end of an era. Yes it was fun slamming with you. It gave me a reason to get excited about the Soup again. I understand that most of the people here don't understand slam, but anyone with any kind of literary background knows that poetry can be aggressive in it's expression. Despite the obvious "racial undertones," I would still suggest that some of you research "Playing The Dozens." Or if you are more comfortable with the status quo, just research "Satire."

    JAM, you know that I don't care for slams so I don't even read past the first stanza. lol I prefer the many other forms of poetry you write. I hope this signals the end of slamming. I don't think you know how very gifted you are sometimes. You're a very gifted poet and I will always love your writes. Love, Annalise xo

    Of Course I know very little about slams. But this sounds more pleasing to my this old ears, Jimmy

    First of all, Jimmy, how are you? I think your poetry is outstanding, I do not support or believe in slamming, it just gets out of hand, so I will reserve my opinion on saying who is the best slammer, what I would like to see is you writing for self and leaving the anger behind, it serves no purpose, you have grown as a writer so much and if I am not mistaken freedom is close~~

    I'm not into the slamming, Jimmy, but you know your poetry on other topics is Aces with me. And look at all the contests you are winning! Congratulations on all your creative success. Love, Carolyn

    dakarai it has been fun, I admit you are "good" - I still think I'm better - I am convinced you are 2nd best on the site - and I do know no other "poets" on here can slam with us - nor on the other sites I'm on ..Poetry Pub etc. I am curious why your don't join other poetry sites - Poetry Pub, dark poetry, outsider writers etc. Well, be cool dude...
