Limerick of Lament and Rap of Rage: Profilin’

Yesterday, someone disabled my facebook account, for reasons unknown to me.  It’s hard not to take something like this personally, so I decided to get it out of my system by writing an angry rap. Picturing me, your average mom, rapping in this style is enough to bring humor to any situation. I feel so spiritually cleansed! Time to start over. Here it is:
Apparently I have myself an enemy
Just when I thought everyone was a friend to me
Someone knew I loved facebook
So that’s what they took
I’ll start up again, wait and see.
So many words in just my first draft
This could be good for my craft
Just like Eminem
I will have to show them
You THINK you will have the last laugh.
Scratch this limerick style
Let me rap for awhile
i have friends, you could CALL them my fans
hold me up when i’m TAKIN’ a stand.
i’m not TAKIN this ban
you think i can’t, but i KNOW that I can
did it once, I can DO it again
now I’m BETTER than

the pen . . .

WHEN I began

so GIVE me a hand
don’t MISunderstand
it’s ALL in the plan
now HERE i am
like johnny TO ed mcmahon.
I’ll have a NATION
In a standing ovAtion
in an aBOMination
won’t make no acCOMmodation

. . . is mightier than the rolling pin!

to your affiliAtion

so take a vaCAtion
to my creAtion
in your dediCAtion
don’t change the STAtion
rappin’ rhymes in acCELeration
don’t like your Accusation
the aggraVAtion
is WAStin my time
usin’ words to the best of my aBILity
with aGILity
tryin to keep my ciVILity
to our incompatiBILity
so get your FILL of me
and my crediBILity
are you STILL with me
Larry, you’re KILLin’ me
your act is FILLin’ me
with rage
and WILLin’ me
to FILL this page
so GET off the stage
with your MINimum wage
start ACTin your age
not your SHOE size
I will NOT compromise
anyTHING may arise
let me deCRIMinalize
what they may SEE in their eyes
this world is FULL of goodbyes
but i ain’t goin’ NOwhere

Here i am till the end

You can STILL be my friend

and if it HAPpens again
can’t say when
i will PICK up my pen
Whew! How cathartic. After all that was said, and all that was done I want all to know that I never intended to bully, intimidate, or harass, or to post content that: is hateful, threatening, or pornographic; incites violence; or contains nudity or graphic or gratuitous violence or to do anything unlawful, misleading, malicious, or discriminatory. If I did so,  please forgive me. If I ever do so again, please bring it to my attention rather than have me wondering what I did wrong and to whom. Although I have contacted facebook, I may never see my account again.

  2. you are so very creative.

  3. Absolutely loved it. Excellent freestyle. As one who grew up to the hip hop movement, I absolutely loved it. I still have ties to rap, my nephew is a producer and artist. Made me feel so nostalgic for my days of Run DMC, Eric B & Rakim, and the lovely LL Cool J!!!!


    • wow, thanks for giving me some “street cred” lol. my teenage daughter refuses to read it. i think she is just afraid that she might like it. yes, ll cool j still IS lovely! lucky us, he is acting now!

  4. Oh Joyce, I am so sorry this happened!!! We know who you are and what you stand for. Don’t forget someone said I was like a colonialist with a mind set that would lead to terrorism…success is the best revenge!

  5. I personally think Facebook is NUTS to shut your account.. or maybe it was a sad and pathetic mistake! whatever it is, I sincerely hope you have it back, with all it’s glory intact!!!

    And your rapperrick (that’s what am gonna call it!) cracked me up COMPLETELY !! You really can give summa those rap artists a run for their money!!! Seriously… it was tooo good!!
    I am not sure if they have a genre for funny raps, and if they don’t I honestly think you should pioneer it! 😀
    LOVED your style, girl… and although it all startd with something bad, I must confess, it was hilarious to read! AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME!!!

    Once again, I hope you get your account back .. I was on your list too 😦

    • Thanks Kavita! love the term rapperrick, it’s so good i may HAVE to make it a genre. don’t worry, we are still facebook friends, and i look forward to writing your birthday limerick.

  6. Thank goodness that I’ve found you!!!!!!!!!!
    I was freaking out.
    I can’t believe someone would do that to you!!! Hopefully is was just a glitch of some kind. I can’t imagine someone purposely trying to hurt you!!!
    Anyway, I sent you a friend request. I hope you’ll accept me!! lol

    Loved your rappin’!!! You go girl!

    Love you!!!

    • good thing you found me, you were harder to find! how irritating to put you all through this. but it makes for an interesting week, doesn’t it? just when you thought summer was getting boring . . .
