My Hip-Hop Poem About Penniless Hearts



What’s Penniless Hearts About?

It’s about a graphic artist.
And drug smugglers, as in: The Fist—
but first-- a dream sequence--a Prince.
Then a handsome pilot makes you wince--
because he’s such a jerk--
like the lady from work--
and the greedy boss--
agonizing over profit and loss.
Aside from the bad--
There’s also her dad--
and a sweet guy
 with tears on his face.
 It’s a tropical race,
 Where lava explodes,
helicopters implode--
while the goddess sleeps,
dreaming more,
strengthening her for
a meeting with a wise man
called Stephan—
reminding her to drop the sour
climb into hidden powers.
When meeting the Fist--
Her artistic flick of the wrist--
there when it counts--
Pele can pounce.
And in an island flash--
Kicks criminal ass.
Alas, it’s time for you,
To read this book.
Take a look--
Write a review--
Merely find out...whether wishes come true.
