SWAGGER DAGGERS---Hooked On Ebonics, VOL 1

*written for Verlena's Contest "EBONICS, Let's Do Some Slang"


Yir' boy fin' ta' told ya' bout some lessons in what the Man call Ebonics.
Cus' I gots' this!
Like the young fellow named Carmello on the New York Knicks, 
and girrrrrl I got mo' slang in my verse than the words of them nerds
down at Hooked On Phon-ics


I keeps my flows tight,
Fam , 
cus word is bond like James
and I ain't talkin' Rick James, RIIIGHT!
Ya' see, round cheer, 
between Normandy and Western, 
what we call this is a little "Twennie Twin Twin"
but round the way,
where you stay, 
they just may call this a "Sinny Sin Sin!"

Yo, hold up baby girl...
Lemme ax you suh-um...
Who you be with?
cus Shawty, how you look, 
is off the hook,
and Boo-Boo you is suh-um I can see me with with!

Yo Yo Yo! Wait! Hold up girrrl! Where you goin'?

'Sup honey child, 
You know my favorite basketball player used to be Yao Ming!  
Get it Yao Ming?
Yaa-Mean!?!-----(crickets chirp-ing fir' certain)

Lady Queen, come on back to me!
Yo, my jokes may be stupid, but they clean, 
B'sides, I coulda' been' said something idiotic like Idi Amin,
And the homey don't even play no basketball, ya dig? 
Yes YESHall! ...

Better put that ON SOMETHIN'! 
And you KNOW THIS!----(awww heck naw, Shawty dipped...)
