"Yes, we can"


(This was inspired by Nikki Giovanni's poem, "We Real Cool.")

We real bad

We just get mad
We ditch school

We lark late
We don't graduate

i love the poem "we real cool"
and i get what you did. but when you turn it around like that it doesn't have spark, or spunk, or whatever. and that's what made "we real cool" for me; the attitude.
