Patrick Haverty

Captured Talk Poem

Have you ever been hated or discriminated against?
So why do you build me up butter cup?
Because I have been protested and demonstrated against.
My name is known all over the world by all the foxy ladies and the pretty girls
Because I’m a show stopper a show, show stopper.
My homies in the hood say holler back younging WOOT WOOT
Because I’m so fly no lie.
I was crying when I met you
Because I wasn’t saying you’re a gold digger
But my mama said knock you out.
