gangsta rap made me write a poem by Sudeep Adhikari

it was the same old morning. my kid
making my world go round,
despite the historic rocket-launch
 by mr. mike hughes, somewhere in a
california’s desert-strip ,
to prove mother earth is a humble pancake.

sipping a cup of tea, i was
listening to ice cube and reading

steven pinker’s new book,
that looks like a fat juicy pulp-fiction
by its cover. dude started a chapter
with a quote by barack obama, which

was just about to throw me into an
inaudible swearing-fit; and my wife said,
at least listen to some god-hymns in the 
morning for god’s sake!

i said, i would dear, if gangsta rap made me do it.
