I'm sick of the game (3x),
Some people play as poets.
Because Langston Hughes and Maya Angelou,
Didn't mimic another poet's attitude.
They had a heap of their own soul.
And they had no other cadence
To fall upon.
Their linguistic anomalies,
Could single-handedly bring all to their their knees.
And whether it was soliloquy or haiku,
Poetry wouldn't be poetry without you.
And you inspire me
Yes, you really do.
Because like Patti said,
"I got a new attitude."
