Favorite Quote:
A bell is no bell till you ring it, a song is no song till you sing it, and love in your heart wasn't put there to stay, love isn't love till you give it away."

Open up your doors for me
Holdin’ up all your goods for me
Put it on display
Let me see the way you roll
Checkin’ out your junk
Openin’ your trunk
Meats, thick and juicy, sitting in the tups
And I’m gonn’ be eatin’ up
All them tasty fruits.
Cannot wait to taste
What you’re throwin’ in my face.
But lookin’ at you I can’t keep my hunger up
Cannot satiate my thirst though
So pour some o’ your juice down my throat mo’
Couldn’t quench this fire with a moat so
Gimme some o yo’ water fridge,
Pour it up in herrrr fridge
Keep on going ‘till its overflowin’
Then let my cup runneth over
if you know what I mean
Now that’s what I call keen.
Tip that bottle right in to me
And make sure it’s free
Of any last drips and drops
Cause I want every last bit of your-
Bottle’s empty now
And I’m left wonderin’ how
This plastic bottle just sitting here
Perfectly clear
Throw it all away
Get up to go away
I’m hungry now
See the door’s still stayin’ open
But I’m sorry fridge
I want ice cream for dessert
So I’m leaving you in the dirt.

The author's comments:
In English class, we read a poem entitled "Refrigerator 1957" and were then told to write a poem similar to it in style and subject matter. While discussing the poem in class, someone jokingly asked if they could write a rap, when the teacher answered yes, I decided I would. The person who asked the question, did not actually write a rap, but I did, and I rapped it in front of the whole class. I am a teenage white girl.
