It’s that time again, ladies and gentlemen.  It’s Friday song day.  One of our regular Ragtag Daily Prompt contributors, Victoria Stuart, has written and recorded some raps recently.  If there is a fancy name for this poetry style, I have no idea what it is.  Anyway, I was really taken with both her poem, Korean BBQ (Can I Get a To-Go Box), and her performance, so I thought it would make a perfect choice for my Friday song day.

Here is a link to her poem as well. 

It’s got groove.  It’s got rhythm.  It’s got heart.  It’s got everything.  I could say that a star is a born but that would be a different song.  Hope you like it and have a good weekend.

  1. Thank you, Tracy what a great poem. Have you heard “Shoulders” by Shane Koyczan and the short story long” on YouTube. This poem uses the f-word once in an appropriate context. Shane’s spoken poetry was featured in the opening ceremonies of the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, also Shane has performed his poetry at a Ted Talk in 2013. He is a Canadian treasure but like most poets is challenging.

    1. Sid, I think I may have given the wrong link to Victoria’s poem, but no matter, all of her poems are brilliant. “Shoulders” has a familiar ring to it. I watched it again and really enjoyed it. The f word is widely spoken in Australia, except maybe by evangelicals and those over 80.


      1. The f-word is very common in daily Canadian usage but it stills retains some of its power particularly when said in anger. As in he dropped an “f-bomb”! It is not prudery that has many cringing as a small child experiments with language but more a sense of loss as profanity is misused. Words fall and rise over the decades and if f**k is in decline as it moves from vulgar to common daily usage as in pass the ‘f-ing ’ salt, what word will become its vulgar replacement? Swear words are indispensable and knowing the taboo ones when one meets one’s true love’s parents for the for the first time. ‘’Hello Bill, how the f*** are you!” might be taken as disrespectful. This caution is only informed self-interest. Hence a warning of a impending decline in civility looms ahead seems to warrant one to be circumspect.
