The Great Gatsby -school assignment-
A time of prosperity.
Nick the outsider,
Brought into this world of liars.
As He meets Tom and Daisy
He realizes this relationship isn't innocent & free
As Tom see's Myrtle, another affair.
Nick forced to be ensnared.
Invited to a party by Gatsby
He will finally get to uncover his mystery.
Gatsby asks Nick a favor
To meet Daisy later
Now with the pieces in place
This tragedy staring them in the face
With Jordan after Nick
Tom is figuring this out quick.
As Tom realizes Daisy's deceit
George realizes Myrtle's a cheat
With Gatsby falling for Daisy even more
For he couldn't have her because he used to be poor.
As he meets the girl of his past
He finally get's a chance at last.
Not realizing it's to late
He falls for her innocent bait.
While daisy appears innocent
She's actually rotten, Gatsby's just to ignorant.
Closer & closer to the end
The angels are about to descend.
Gatsby and Tom finally meet.
Without being discreet.
Daisy says she used to love tom
Now Gatsby's hope is gone.
Myrtle is killed by daisy
But the blame goes to Gatsby
As George snaps from his wife's murder.
His life is about to go under
As Gatsby relaxes in his pool.
George shoots him like a fool.
Gatsby dead and six feet below,
Yet only three bother to show.
(I got a 100% credit for the assignment; do you think i deserved it? It is supposed to be a slam poem so tell me)
