NaPoWriMo 2012 – 30 Poems in 30 Days – Day 21
Whew, it’s been 21 days of straight poetry! Wowzers! I’m feeling a little loopy today so I thought I’d write something fun and silly and when I think of fun I think of rapper Nicki Minaj. The crazy colorful wigs and outfits, her eye-popping videos and catchy outlandish lyrics sometimes inspire negative critiques, but honestly, I think the girl is just trying to have a little fun. It doesn’t hurt that she shares my astrological sign of Sagittarius either. We can sometimes be tactless and over the top, but at our core, we are creative, loving and filled with passion! Happy Saturday! Hope you enjoy:
11 million followers dropped like a dime
All because a rapper heard voices in her mind
She be pink and manic & some may call her sleazy
But her flow is rather hectic
She is the female Weezy!
Her eyes are wide like saucers
She makes that paper like the ballers
Her clothes are sometimes silly
Cause she be sipping on that Henny
But when it comes to rhyming
No one can beat her timing
She beez in the trap
The chick can flat out rap
So when it comes to dissing
Please keep it on the low
If she hears you flipping
She drop that ass to the floor
Not with her fist
Because she is non-violent
She’ll cut you quick with lyrics
Your eye will be bruised and shining
So she has gone silent
For how long we do not know
Maybe it’s just a ploy
To make her some more dough
Cause Twitter is a flitter
And Facebook is abuzz
All talking about Nicki
And the ill shit that she does
That girl’s got a plan
She aint showing her hand
She’ll be back I’m sure
This is just a detour
So don’t pout
And be sad
Bump her music
And be glad
It’s only entertainment yo’
There always be plenty mo’

I’m sitting here watching this beauty sing, using colorful metaphors and slinging her vibe in my face. LOL!! Fun! Your poem was a blast too. I can see you rapping… rhyming. C’mon, do it and play the video here! LOL!! I’m a total trouble maker but if I were young I think I’d be diving into everything!
So, my artist friend, I must comment you on your sticktoitivness! Amazing Tameka!!! Never stop T, never stop <3
Love you honey pie!
LOL! LEAH! See how we Sag’s get down? As you eat life raw and I spit lyrics of fire, Nicki raps ravishingly doesn’t she? I love people who throw caution to the wind and live their lives loud and she definitely does that. I may take you up on your challenge and post a vid of me rapping one day really soon. Honestly, I’m more of a creator of lyrics than a spitter of them, but I will step out of my comfort zone and do it for the fun of it one day soon.
Thanks for always championing me. I’m so proud of you too and can’t wait to read your book. Cheers and hugs mama! 🙂
She is good and so are you. Tameka, your poem is awesome and I agree with Leah about you rapping and posting that video 🙂
I saw a documentary on Nicki Minaj not so long ago. I’m not really into the whole rapping scene, but there’s no question she’s talented. Just as you are equally talented with this lyrical number. A video of you rapping…now that would be something. I know you can command that stage (smile). Never lose that creative spark of yours Tameka. Keep your creativity coming. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks Sulekha! I think I may get a purple wig and create another persona for my performance! 😉
Hey Andy, yeah, rapping and hip-hop isn’t for everyone, but at their core most of the artists are simply poets with super charged clothes and marketing! LOL! Thanks as always for your comments and your support. Cheers! 🙂
Hi, Tameka! ~
Thank you for introducing me to Nicki Minaj! Loved the video — very inspiring since I’m working on my next video (whatever that means — haha!)
I agree with Sister Sag, Leah, who says YOU should make your own video and post it HERE!!!
Great poem and tribute to an over-the-top DIVA! Thank you! Thank you!!!
That girl has got style – her own – and so have you, lady! 🙂
Hey Linda! I knew you would appreciate this being that you are a part of the archer club! With all of this encouragement, perhaps I will make my last poem of the month into a rap and post the vid. We shall see! I can’t wait to see your next video! We are doing it up for April aren’t we? Cheers! 🙂
Thanks Corinne! So do you! I love your style! 🙂
Oh, I must admit, I’m totally out of the loop when it comes to rap; I never heard of Nicki until now. If she writes anywhere near as wonderfully as you do, then she’s mighty talented!
Awww, you are a sweetheart Martha! I appreciate that! 🙂
I like Nicki Minaj. She’s creative and not afraid to be herself. Your poem is just as colorful as she is. Yay for woman power! ;p
Thanks Sweepy! Women rock the world! 😉
