    I once said I was gonna spit a poem
    and a person was quick to let me know they thought i was wrong
    she turned to me..looked me up and down
    twisted her face into the Ugliest frown
    and said..
    "Poets dont spit, they flow
    and if you were a true poet then this you would know!"

    "Whoa!" I thought in my head
    but in reply I simply said
    "I'm bout to SPIT in yo face
    and at the same time put you in your place
    because whether you call it
    Flowing
    Spitting
    Rhyming
    Ripping
    or Expressively Expressing Verbs
    They are all a poets written and spoken words
    So next time you up in a poets cypher
    tryin to correct them and you dont even know him or her
    know this one FACT
    a poet doesn't hate on his own
    cause we all have each others BACK"

    then i looked her up and down
    twisted my face into the Ugliest frown
    and said..
    but a "true poet" would know THAT...




    just tried to have a lil fun with a true situation that annoyed me. :)

    whether is spit or spoken
    words quickly thought
    or phrases well chosen
    its an art form
    that defies all definition
    stop talkin' so much
    just shut up and listen

    Well Written...Keep Spittin'
