Writing Workshop Wednesday: Sandwich in da jam, by P33TZMusiK

Sandwich in da jam 

 

I guess I am what I am

So today, for practice the arranged word sandwich is for 

Def Jam

 

Maybe I’m past obnoxious and the expiry date

Retrying to get back into musik, my thought-relate any 

blissful happy stint

 

To treat myself I put on music, not jumpin’ off the shelf,

Atmosphere, dark, or Lil Big Wayne distracts me from 

this livin’ hell.

 

I love Eminem, D12 Proof and B-Real of Cypress Hill

I love Pearl Jam, Rage Against the Machine, the political 

revolutions thrill,

 

Why not bully the self with 2 or 3 green or purple pills?

License to thrill, memories of post-backstage indo-orgie 

ill-chill

 

The work of crazytown--sharper than the swords in that 

movie Kill Bill,

 

As I read this rhyme I decide that “Time Wasted Is Not 

Wasted Time.”

 

P33TZMusiK participates in Megaphone's creative writing workshop at Lifeskills. This poem was originally published in The Root Cellar, a chapbook featuring work produced by Lifeskills writers between May and July 2013.
