This is an entirely new writing style for me. I had a slightly humourous attitude while I wrote it, so please keep that in mind. It is not long, but gets to the point and applies to many people we all know. Maybe even some of us as well.

Thanks for reading!


Flippidy flap,You run your trap
Never stop to think of the facts you lack

Your mind is set, care not to hear
Will you not listen to your peer?

Arrogance is high, scent of it strong
Truth be damned, you are never wrong

Exalted opinion, all praise to its glory
Never mind truth, that’s a different story

So I’ll converse with another, my opinion they’ll enjoy
Not discarded as propagandas ploy

Speak what you want, your mind set in stone
What good does it do when you debate all alone?

Zippity zap, a taser fires
50,000 volts flow through the wires

I pee my pants as I lose control
My bowels are next, Oh god, oh no!

A baton strikes across my face
and now I'm doused with fiery mace

My eyes swell shut, my nose is crushed
I lose two teeth, my face is mush

The police tell them that all is fine
That's what I get for cutting line

Happy Black Friday!

Lol, that was fun. Who's next?

What contest?

EDIT: Ohhhhhh, I found it, lol. I was just playing off of what Sheepslayer wrote. I don't think I should enter that because it's too similar to what he/she did.

I've got a feeling you were thinking of someone specific when writing that.



Awesome entry. I usually don't care much for poetry but when done with wit and humor, it is an excellent form of entertainment.

I had a specific type of person in mind when writing it, but it could apply to many.

Poetry is new for me as well, but I have been reading some off-beat new age stuff that really caught my attention. It's fun to work with and I am glad you enjoyed it!

Great job, Sheepslayer. I was hearing a beat in my head -- sort of an 8/8 -- after just the first stanza. It has rhythm, it has purpose, and it makes me laugh. Perfect!

Edit to add: After reading again, I'm hearing a quick guitar riff with a lot of gain in between each line.

I happen to be a musician and there is a beat that coincides with the OP, but that is up to each reader to plug-in theor own style of beat.
