I'M ME -YOU'RE YOU

LISTEN UP IMMA GEEK THAT'S STANDARD/

TELL EM AGAIN MAKE SURE THE MANS HEARD/

NEVER BEEN ONE FOR A QUICK FIX FUMBLE/

RATHER HAVE AN INTELLECTUAL TUMBLE/

 

SEE SOME GIRLS LIVE TO PUT IT ABOUT/

TO ME THAT AINT WHAT LIFE IS ALL ABOUT/

WHILE YOU GIVE IT UP TO EVERY TOM DICK AND TYRELL/

I KEEP MY EYE ON AN ELEVATED LEVEL/

 

YES, I HOLD MY OWN ON THIS PLANET/

YOU JUST DONT HAVE IT/

YOU CANT MANAGE/

RAPPIN YOUR GOB BUT I'M A LYRICAL SAVAGE/

LICK YOU DOWN LIKE A FIRST CLASS CARRIAGE/

 

YES, I ALWAYS IMPRESS/

EVEN WHEN YOU STEP OUT IN YOUR GUCCI DRESS/

WITH YOUR TINGS ON SHOW FOR ALL TO SEE/

I MAKE THE CLOTHES THEY DON'T MAKE ME/

    In high school I admired geeks. More comfortable now without all the intellectual hoopla. Confidence supreme/ tones of high class poetical verbiage. Unique/loud and clear!

    Quite right too, stick to that point of view, anybody can wear nice clothing, it doesn't always make them nice. I liked the rhymes, the meter went a bit screwy in the middle. Enjoyed reading you poems today.
