Artist With A Pen

Carlos – Yonkers H.S. – Grade 12

You call me an Artist
Well, I am an “Arteeest” with a Pen.
I draw pictures with my voice and paint them over with bare hands.
I sculpt stanzas with my teeth and build castles with lyrical sand.
I engraved my ideas in some processed and bleached form of wood using my Papermate chisel,
and display them in semi-transparent glass cases with a mic in the middle,
I portray a level of sophistication with the scratch board as my medium
and use my tongue to etch the board and reveal the underlying seed that sunk
So next time you call me an artist,
take it back.
Understand that I am an “Arteeest” that
just happen to write you a rap.
