I watch a rapper- a pointless task

Poem by Marc Aupiais

My lover- I wonder- at the 7 hills, and the Tiber-
Green and beautiful-
Is it only in my mind!

And I watch, as I am to be

By rap- fast talking-
Sometimes to music!

Filled with dirty politics,
And vulgar dirty mouths!

Yet I am to be entertained they say!
Not by the 7 hills,

But by some dirty young man?

Who cannot imagine the 7 hills,
Or the Tiber?

Instead of the symphony of our world!
A fast talker? A vulgar malcontent?

Thank God, I pray you feel the same!
Our world is beautiful!

Entertaining enough!
Without fast talking!

The hills are alive!
Let us hear singing and music!

Let us sing,
As we watch,

Let us observe- what is good!
