I was sitting on the pavement this evening, in Melbourne, with my hat upturned in front of me and a few cultural messages to spread, when a young guy named Benny sat next to me informing me that I was wearing an amazing Wu-Tang jacket.
I had no idea what Wu-Tang meant, so I looked them up online to find out why that was important to Benny.
Then I wrote this rap.:
“I got caught short and lost in rorts,
cos dumb cops thought my brain was nought.
But the joke’s on them cos I’m showing men
and women too that I stick true
They’d bust us,
but trust this please,
all women and men,
I will win!
I will win!”
My first day in court, for upsetting the police by standing up for an Aboriginal guy, is next Friday.
