You think thats deep? Ripping off an idea from a movie and putting it into spoken word? Is the bar set this low now?
Read this, and tell me if you don't see a huge yawning chasm of poetic quality...
If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
A dust whom England bore, shaped, made aware,
Gave, once, her flowers to love, her ways to roam,
A body of England's, breathing English air,
Washed by the rivers, blest by suns of home.
And think, this heart, all evil shed away,
A pulse in the eternal mind, no less
Gives somewhere back the thoughts by England given;
Her sights and sounds; dreams happy as her day;
And laughter, learnt of friends; and gentleness,
In hearts at peace, under an English heaven.
Really, it is night and day.
I honestly don't. It depends on who is writing it and the overall vision or message they are trying to convey. That was an awesome poem though.
How does this sound to you?
My issue isn't televised, and you ain't gotta tell the wise
how to stay on beat, because our life's an instrumental
This is physical and mental, I won't sugar-coat it
You'd die from diabetes if these other niggas wrote it
And everything on TV just a figment of imagination
I don't want no plastic nation, (dread) that like a Haitian
While you motherfugers waiting, I be off the slave ship
Building pyramids, writing my own hieroglyphs
