The Oreo Shuffle

A Poem by Erren Kelly

I watch movies no one understands
And dance to rock and roll bands
People get so uptight
Because i take a lover who’s white
I love my birkenstocks and a black derby
I love it when girls talk nerdy
I  speak better english  than most
I read  books, they treat me like a ghost
I dont care about being hard
I solve my problems with my master card
Often,  im misunderstood
Im too educated to be hood
Dont care about twerkin or getting lit
For me dungeons and dragons is it
A bubble butt dont move me at all
Just skateboards, jazz and basketball
Dont care about being  a one percent
A day at comiccon keeps me spent
