Yeah we gots ourselves a new little ole challenge here --- No one (as far as I know) participated in the last challenge I had up which was given on one of the episodes of The Goodnight Shows. So I am scratching that idea.
Here is the new challenge. Pick one of these stanzas from the lyrics by Isaac Hayes (sound track to the movie Shaft) and use it as your EPIGRAPH. Not sure what an epigraph is or how to use it in poetry? What's the matter you ain't got google?
Okay here goes. Pick one and only one as your epigraph.
Artist: Isaac Hayes Lyrics
Song: Theme from Shaft Lyrics
Who's the black private dick
That's a sex machine to all the chicks?
Ya damn right!
Who is the man that would risk his neck
For his brother man?
Can you dig it?
Who's the cat that won't cop out
When there's danger all about?
They say this cat Shaft is a bad mother
SHUT YOUR MOUTH!
I'm talkin' 'bout Shaft.
THEN WE CAN DIG IT!
He's a complicated man
But no one understands him but his woman
There is no deadline. Poems will be considered for something or other.
Oh and I suggest to get you in the groove you listen to the soundtrack yourself. Stop by here if you want to take a listen.
