NaPoWriMo Day 18, Respect

Day 18 NaPoWriMo : Today’s prompt is  to write a poem that begins and ends with the same word. Not easy so here goes!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Respect

———–

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Respect the boys demand,

Bling  dripping from neck and hand.

Acting like gangsters  pushing everyone around

Out your mouth you make Jamaican sound.

Big man, you think you are

Driving round in your  customed car.

Running with the gang hanging with the girls

Your prospect disapearing like swine before pearls.

Harassing the nervous and the older folk

Littering the place with needles, skank and  coke.

Never mind the children playing by the swings

They don’t know about needle sticks, aids and things

Peddling drugs and using kids on bikes as runners

Making rules for gangs, becoming knifers and gunners!

Starting young and never growing old

Ending up dead in a pool of blood on the pavement cold.

Mother grieving, says he was a good son

She don’t know the half of what he’s done.

Black hearse carries the boy, all his friends stand and reflect

On his coffin a single wreath spells the one word, Respect.
