A GHETTO POEM

by DIMITRIUS

Gul I loveded you,
Straight up fo'sho.
Or I wouldna told dem ova girls
not to call me no mo.

I knowed it was true,
the first day I seed you.
Why you thank I do,
the thangs I do?

Remember how I use ta wine and dine you,
Schlits Malt Liquor and Bar-Ba-Que.
I gave you a bubble baze and fed you grapes.
Dey was on sale that week a dolla ninety-eight.

Romanic evenins after dark,
Skreet light walks around the block.
Like the very first time,
you came ova to my crib.
And you got all scared,
cause that roach was on yo Tims.
I was right dare,
with a can of spray.
To be yo Super Negro,
and save the day.

I ain't even pay my light bill,
so I can take you to da club.....
Don't knock ova dem candles
and burn up my rug!

And dat nite we made luv,
for a long liddle bit of time.
I hope you got yours,
cause I sho'nuff got mine.

    Hi I didnt write this someone eles did. I saw it and thought is was very amuzing. You might want to lighten up a little. I did write one called "life in the city". Check it out. It might be more of your taste.

    Thanks 4 da post.

    i don't think that this poem was meant to degrade anybody, because just as quick as you can image the narrator of the story as black you can image him as white. you are just not being open minded to the situation. your mind set is in the range of correlating african americans with the word ghetto. dont get me wrong i am fully african american and grew up in the ghetto of detroit, im just saying i liked the poem because it told the truth about life and in reality people do talk like that . thats life accept it. poetry is about life accept it. You dont have to fall short to it but u can learn to accept it. on the other hand i can say that if this poem was used in a different content as say a black magazine i wouldn't be too happy about it because thats stereotype. so think about your comment before you jump to conclusions. u get a 4 for lookking out for yoyur ''people''

this is ignorant. why must you write the way you talk, its rediculous you think it makes you seem more intersting these people are mocking you just not openly. don't do this. love the poem it'd just be better if you wrote it in english and not crapish.

Good poem, creative. and for ppl saying its offencive, come on. Poetry is art. just because some one person thinks that, say, nude sculpture is bad and untasteful, doesnt mean thats its bad or offencive, it means that the creator isnt afraid to to be himself, or create art in his own way. but hey, everyone is entitled to an opnion i guess =P

but at the same time it is giving people the wrong message towards people who live in the ghetto. not all people talk, act, or are like that. some of us have class.
