The high school where I work has a number of teenage boys who walk down the crowded hallways in their own worlds, seemingly talking to themselves, but upon closer inspection are rhyming. This is what this poem reminds me of. Your voice could be one of these fresh-street-wise-young-bulls as they say it how it is in their fast-moving world inundated with urban sound, images and above all story-telling music.
"Off the hook"! oops-I think this is passe and that my students would quickly let me know this.
I'll have to ask them tomorrow what the term is for something amazing and will "no doubt" get back to you ;)
