imitation poem

Dream Hip-Hop

Well, hey there Girl!
Have you seen
The hip-hop hysteria
On the TV screens?

Watch closely
You'll see their moves
Dub steppin' and steppin' on a-

You think
It's somethin' you could do?

Watch how they pop and lock
Can you feel
pull in your soul
When ya' -

Feel the beat drop?
Sister Go!
Do the hip-hop!
Jump Jump!
Go sister!
Do the Hip-Hop!

"Good morning, daddy!
Ain't you heard
The boogie-woogie rumble
Of a dream deferred?"
