I Don't Like Rap


Writing poetry is lots of fun for a couple of reasons.
It's a nice break from drawing comics and it's much easier.....

I DON'T LIKE RAP

I don't like rap. It drips like a tap.
It hurts my head at the front and the back.
It wouldn't seem so quite absurd
if I could understand one word.

All folks have a different take
on what might cause their ears to ache.
What makes rap a double whammer
is the pounding beat that hits like a hammer.

It's quite an art to choose a theme
while making sure it's not obscene.
Then fill the audience full of it
until they snap or throw a fit.

I hear it on my radio -
the morning wake-up disco show.
It always gets me out of bed
to turn it off before I'm dead.

There's nothing like a clever rhyme
but not repeating all the time.
What's pleasing is a melody
and songs the way they used to be.

There was an age not long ago
when music was the only show.
But things have changed, I knew they would,
not for the bad nor for the good.

So I don't like rap. It drips like a tap.
It hurts my head at the front and the back.
It corners me like a rat in a trap
and that's the reason why I don't like rap.

R A P - R.I.P.

This poem works well with a hammer beat!
