a poem dedicated to me

November 11, 2009

rolling around Brooklyn on the Q train one evening, a little poem floated towards me. it came from a small gaggle of teenage boys and it went pretty much exactly like this:

i say to.meh.to, you say to.mah.to

i say po.teh.to, you say po.tah.to

i say man, you say woman

(and here comes my favourite line:)

i say dick, you say date

(but then it got mean…)

i say cut, you say “that shit off”

(in reference to my proverbial dick, i imagine)

to which I say…

let’s call the whole thing off?
