Goldfinch60

Rap Man, Rap.



He raps his song

To a beat

And as he sings

Moves his feet

The beat is strong,

The sound of bass

The drums play loud

He runs the race

Within each line

A story told

His voice is loud

His voice is bold

The story ends

As does his song

The cheers go on

They want some more

Of his fine rap

So back he sings

Upon the stage

To sing his feelings

Bound in rap.

    Any rapping at church today? Or 'tut tuts', and 'don't you even cough' - it will disturb the service?! A fine write Gold.

    • Goldfinch60

      The hymns chosen for today do not include any Rap but I could try it with "Give me joy in my lamp" as a rap bass line .

        Thanks Gold As long as we're not heretical! Well, some churches have 'informal' and 'formal' services now. Both are styles of worship. e.g. I doubt many 90 year olds would rap, though the youth may want more 'modern' things. Let's have that oil in our lamps - not run out of steam!

          Right up my street
          I could hear the beat
          Toes twitch on my feet
          As a rap I'm complete
          Bass under my seat
          Vibration of you & me

          • Goldfinch60

            Rap away Dan, rap away.

              Andy,

              Thank you for a great Sunday treat!
              Loved your poem!

              I enjoyed listening to your acquaintance’s rap music. He’s pretty good! Is he the father of the two little girls in the video?

              Watching “The Plank” was hilarious! It had me in stitches!🤣🤣

              Awesome post!

              My love to Joyce and to you!

                Thank you Laura. He was only the dad of one of the girls, the other was a friend.

                "The Plank" will always be funny no matter how long ago it was created.

                Reminds me of when my friend bought a brass plate copy of the lords prayer for his daughter. The young shop keeper had had it polished especially and proudly showed it to my friend in all its glossy splendor.
                'Thats excellent' said my friend 'now would you wrap it for me?'
                The young shop keeper immediately verbalised a drum ruythmn and began to Rap 'The lord is my... etc'

                  Great story da, we don't do much rapping in our Church.

                  • Goldfinch60

                    Thank you A and B, you are right there is not much room for rap in our Church.
