"My Identity as a Stereotypical Side Character" by Marcus Campbell- Read it Now!
I’m a ghetto-blasting, ratchet, hood bastard
with a boom box shouldered like a bazooka
to tip Parental Advisories like rockets right toward Tipper Gore.
Tarzan, ignorant ape-man with a 40 in a brown bag,
a posted-up porch monkey waiting to cat call Mary Jane.
King Kong with a Magnum on, looking for white women.
The savage and the slave in your Lit. teachers’ core curriculum,
the shadows and the jungle in the Heart of Darkness,
the Spear-Chucker Jones in this Mash-up.
