    dis
    poem
    has been branded on the sides of cows
    not words of encrouragement
    to uplift... cure the scourge of men..
    no... dis poem..
    a deterent
    a detergent
    a 'watch ya back my friend..'
    a warning to other poems who aint knowin who land
    who poem..
    who space they in..
    a brand... written on the fur... on the mind.. .on the skin...
    dis poem... it spells it out verbatim
    "dis cow
    on this day
    on this land
    and in this breeze.. and even the sh*t from its *** on the ground that you see
    belong to dis poem
    please
    call dis poem in your nearest write spot
    blog site.. or forum.. if you see dis cow being spit from the mouth of another poem.. thank you.. "
    and its in ALL CAPS... and underlined.. highlighted and colored neon green..
    dis poem.
    no excuses not to see..
    to hear..
    to heed....
    dis poem... shaves mohawks on sheep
    does it to be funny...
    sells the pics for money..
    funds political groups .. various organizations and wannabees...
    dis poem...
    built a church for doubters... for non believes...
    for sinners and thiefs..
    failed preachers... phornicators, and non prayers... even the rude and mean..
    dis poem..
    a choir full of hookers, pimps, johns, and folk on probation.. just got free...
    dis poem..
    doesn't even take tithes or donations.. don't pass the plate for offerings..
    dis poem...
    backed itself in the corner with this whole church thing..
    wasn't the plan for this piece..
    wasn't in the scheme..
    the idea..
    the mood..
    the topic or meaning... just sorta happened.. and dis poem..
    went with it..
    kept writing .. looking for transition windows and segways to cows eating..
    dis poems words from the grass that they be feeding..
    and dis poem...
    did it..
    cleverly evaded having to scrap all the rhymed statements you been reading...
    bounced back to the topic..
    to branded words on the sides of cows..
    to dis poem ..
    to the meaning..

    Awww, sooky-sooky now! You live up to ya name, sir!

    I like!





    Dis poem
    Just like its spitta, sho aint shy
    Making grown men cry
    Like salt in an open wound
    With a flow that's got 'em marching to MY tune
    Cuz DIS poem
    Is BOLD and all up in ya FACE
    Wishin' anotha poet WOULD try to take its place!
    Dis poem
    One day, will be found by archaeologists
    It'll be explicated and dissected by anthropologists
    Tryna unravel the secrets of its ancient lore
    Digging ever deeper hoping to find even more!
    Dis poem
    Will have 'em scratchin' their heads over how
    Every word and line transcends the grammar
    An epic discovery causing an internat'l clamor
    Over who gets to keep it,
    Each country hopin' to lay claim
    While tryna translate the author's name:
    Just WHO wuz this "Cherry Blossom?!"
    To pen DIS POEM so very AWESOME!
    Leaving such a priceless gift
    As they still work to catch the drift
    Of its meaning so esoteric, aloof and lyrical
    Defying the generic, providing proof empirical
    That Dis poem
    Was made for the Ages
    But they gotta digest it in stages
    Underlining, highlighting and taking notes thru its pages
    Cuz DIS POEM
    Is something they've never seen before!
    And just when they think they've got it,
    There's still more to explore!
    Armed guards will rotate serving duty
    Willing to lay down their lives, protecting its beauty
    Tourists will view it under alarmed glass and literally weep
    Day and night, teams of Professors will convene and confer, losing sleep
    Dis poem will spur imaginations, feed fascinations
    Dis poem will theme doctoral dissertations
    Dis poem
    Dis poem
    DIS POEM!

    dis poem
    a rhyme
    a scribe
    the great divide
    tween
    other poems..
    other minds
    dis poem gets read aloud from on high
    the mountain tops
    above sea level... touches the sky

    Welcome to Destee's thaCoolest..

    Dis poem..​

    is anotha poem
    to shock tha senses
    showin' my ish
    the personification
    of a lyrical sensation
    it will be inconceivable
    if you don't survey my mood
    it will be unbelievable
    coz epip is sho nuff smooth
    like peaches & cream
    Imma caramel coated poet
    whose spit is too mean
    Shhhhh, be quiet...
    I got tha mic
    you don't wanna miss a thing
    I can rhyme with a vibe
    to the illest extreme
    I can manipulate tha
    alphabet from A to Z
    keep you in the zone
    like you smokin' good weed
    I will rock your world
    with the slightest of ease
    send you cryin to ya Momma
    wishing you could
    slam like me
    just sit back and relax
    as I spit nouns & verbs
    coz I'm just gettin started

    oh, yall must ain't heard

    dis poem...
    ain't no poem
    if you can't relate
    to hip hop or poetry
    especially the art of spoken word
    so if ya ain't down
    to tha rhythm of tha pulse
    just chill in tha bleachers
    let the professionals show off


    One!

    Keeping it going...

    Dis
    poem
    Tha Coolest
    requested we connect
    like dots and jot down some poet
    thoughts
    its
    taking on
    rhythmical form
    madd respect to those who etched their
    poetic path before
    me
    I
    can
    seize
    the vibe and scribe a few
    lines
    …now…
    I
    ain’t never
    dropped no hip-hop poetry
    and I ain’t that hot coming right off the top
    so take it EZ on a sistah who’s
    willing to give it a
    go
    I
    just might
    tip a script with
    a verbal beat and spit’em
    on these here sheets making you
    tap
    tap
    tap
    your feet
    when
    it comes to poetry
    my
    fonts
    upfront
    I don’t
    play hide-n-go-seek
    no need to squint to read between lines to
    find a message or learn a lesson
    timid
    ain’t my ink’s
    MO
    …so…
    watch out
    if
    I’m about to
    flow
    lest you want to catch
    a case of
    Coco
    …but…
    before I
    go
    go
    I want it to be known
    Dis
    poem
    is to get us
    all in the mix kicking
    continuous
    lyrics
    There ain’t always gotta be a reason
    to
    rhyme
    best believe
    those of us that don’t
    still gonna have a
    dayum

    good

    time


    who’s up next in line?



    feelin'itsouldeep!
    Coco

    Dis poem

    will continue on: pass memory, pass time,
    and naw, you won't be able to
    recite it line for line.

    but dis poem
    has sparked a movement of my pen
    across the page,

    trying to flow a little something
    that will last thruout the age.

    see dis poem
    ain't philosophical:
    nothin' heavy droppin here!
    and ain't really all that spiritual:
    (got no message for you, dear!)

    yet the thought of something flowing,
    ever-changing, like a river,
    got me writing, got me typing,
    sends to me a little shiver.....
