A Poetry Slam about the Film Industry 

This is a Poetry Slam I made in the  11th grade for English class. A lot of people liked it so I decided to post it here. Up above is audio regarding of what it’s supposed to sound like. I hope you guys enjoy and laugh a bit.

We go to the theaters
It’s ruining, twisting, melting our mind
Tells us things we want to hear
We hear it loud
We hear it clear
Showing us images changing our views
What do we say

Rewind to the time back in time
Blockbuster, gone
Stores ripping us off
Money leaving my wallet
For what
To see images that are untrue
Telling us lies
Changing our minds
The same thing
Every time
Girl falls in love
Boy falls in love
Superheroes are just like you and me
Hard Beginnings to see theatrical endings

Okay…. Fast forward
Fast forward to the future
Future is fast, future is big
Netflix and Hulu closing out the stores
Meaningless content with a price like that
Netflix and chill
Netflix and chill!
Scrolling through titles nobody watches
Wasting my time
They lie
Everyone lies

Pause to now
Right now
This is real
This is now, this is the truth
Go out make it your own
Tell the truth
It’s your story
No lies
Just the truth
You are the truth
