Baking in Hell's Kitchen

Source

The bubbling and crackling

Leads to huge paper stacking

Elixir mixing

Girls on the pole stripping

Ass spanking and tipping

All from product stocking

Leading to cash flipping

Source

Four burner stove

Like a witches coven

Consuming like an oven

Bake me a Pie

Get them high

Hyped like a Russian spy

Burnt soul remnants

Left over as residue

Source

Microwave it like HAARP

Now stuck on it from the start

Brain steamed fried

Now a man apart

Checked out from the shopping cart

The cash is never short

Toasted like a pop tart

The Kitchen is hot and dark


Source

The devil is the product

Heaven is being sold

Hot to the lips,

But cold to the brain

Like Antarctica in Africa

Eyes bleed to the deed

A runaway slave to the need

The homeless must feed


Source

The kitchen is cold

The cops look and scold

But they keep their hands fold

While I work the product into a mold

A dangerous art to be sold

Buying and selling souls

Subliminal mind control

The recipe, never too old

I really enjoy this. So good. Some of your rhymes do seem a bit forced though but that could be fixed with more internal rhymes. I would also recommend punctuation, you are already using two commas, I think it would help with some of your lines "brain, steamed, fried."

But if you don't want to do anything to it I still think it's awesome.

Well, despite the poetry critic before me I thought this was excellent. Write it your way my friend; the images were fantastic and it came from you and who you are.

Respect Nochance, I have such a huge comma problem. I get that all the while. They say its because of how I speak. I am enrolling in a comma academy (write) now. Thanks for the positive critique.

This style of peotry is called dub poetry (Reggae Style). I am trying to master it. See the Children are crying out for love and tell me what you think.

This one was a freestyle.

Ohhhh. I totally get it now. Though the term I'm used to is Slam Poetry. If that's what you're going for I would almost recommend a disclaimer at the beginning so the reader can get the right beat in their head. I like this much better now that I know what the style is.

Very similar to slam poetry. Dub poetry is spoken or chanted using the Jamaican dialect. Pretty exclusive to Jamaica. The old schoolers call it toasting.

Great poem which is all the better for its great rhythm. I love the line 'Like Antarctica in Africa', very descriptive but difficult to imagine.

Voted up, etc.

Respect Jools, Thanks for the compliment. That line just popped up and I had to use it.

The poem is a classic and I will be sharing this one across many parts of the web as well, it depicts a great deal for the imagination to think about, nicely done!
