Anyone who knows me (and Chris) knows we've been writing semi-satirical raps for years (since the Champlain days). Well, Chris's new article on the ol' itoopia.com site inspired me to get out the old quill and write a new rap. Here it is:
"Who's Better Than Me?"
Back up, back up, you better
Watch your step.
Spitting lyrics like scarabs like I'm
My ryhmes are like parabs for the
Spending dollars, like ballers, on my
When I got problems I don't
Complain to ya.
Taking charge of matters like
Lawrence of Arabia.
So talented, fill the
My music blasts through every
So many others don't hold a
Candle to me.
I look in the mirror, reflect so
TV censors can't
Cuz when I get on, I cause a
All my peeps in the corner say
"You da man.
Put your mind to it and do
Whatever you can.
If you run out of ink, you can
Use my pen,
Cuz you're so prolific, you're my
West Asian 'N'!"
If I rated my flows, they'd get
Three thumbs up.

Candy on each arm,
So back up, back up, you better
Back the 'eff' away!
I don't know how much more
You can take.
You're bogus, you whack, you phony,
Like a guest on a show hosted by
All hail me, hail me. I'm beyond
I'm ubiquitous unlike Picard's
You mess with me, it's you I
Step right up, step right up if
I hope you enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
