Senseless Sonnet 2
I'm studying the Art of Deception at the university.
I'm winning for Man. United but I'm scoring for Man. City.
I don't believe in God, I only believe in Allah
‘Cause the Pope couldn't hold a candle to the Dalai Lama.
If it weren't for these legs, maybe I could walk again,
And if it weren't for school, I'd be able to count to ten.
President Obama promises to bring along change,
That's if he doesn't get shot from close range.
I thought I existed until I realised it was a dream,
And in waking up, I let out the loudest-ever scream.
I've had teachers who called me their best student,
Even though they thought I was never all that prudent.
Damn! I've said too much ‘cause I haven't said enough;
I've never read my poem ‘I am a Diamond in the Rough'.
