No One Man Should Have All These Powers

Because let's face it - the Role-Playing aspect didn't exactly take off

No One Man Should Have All These Powers

#1 Post by carterboy » Sun Feb 06, 2011 6:59 pm

I came from the 31st century, but I had to time travel
back to solve your misery, I saw you dyin' like cattle
I'm here to save the day, and be the best to do it
I guess that every super hero needs his theme music

No one man should have all these powers
I fly through the air one thousand miles per hour
I lift tons, cause meteor showers
(31st century hero, yeah)

The system's broken, the schools are closed, the prison's open
So I had to come back, it seems you wasn't copin'
in my Danger mobile I'm rollin'
When i jump out the window, I don't fall I'm floatin'
My armor's diamond plated, with adamantium claws
that extend from every bar
that I use to slice dudes 'fore I hit 'em with my card
that I powered up using an explosive charge
, 'cause

No one man should have all these powers
I fly through the air one thousand miles per hour
I lift tons, cause meteor showers
You c'ain't rule it, dawg, the world is ours!
-And they say
-And they say
-And they say
-And they say. hoo!
-And they say
-And they say
(31st century hero, yeah)

You can't catch me, 'cause I'm so fast
I'm talkin' Mach 5 speeds, run with no gas
Mess with me, and I'll rip you a new asshole
plus I catch foes with magical lassos
Billionaire playboy, my power ring's shimmerin'
I'm on that same green that I use to catch these villains with
I'm not playin', stop tryin' to get your game on
I'm pyrokenetic, I don't spit fire, I flame on
I'm so dangerous, I hope you keep standing back
I don't need a sidekick, I downloaded an app for that
I walk through walls, plus my skin is so hard, that
bullets bounce off,
fear my kung fu smack attack
reality can't keep up with me
I got a coalition, call them my Justice League
I am an X-Man, call me a fucking beast
looking down on evil as it looks up to me
screamin'

No one man should have all these powers
I fly through the air one thousand miles per hour
I lift tons, cause meteor showers
You c'ain't rule it, dawg, the world is ours!
-And they say
-And they say
-And they say
-And they say. hoo!
-And they say
-And they say
(31st century hero, yeah)

Military powers, legislative powers
eco-friendly powers, solar powers
nuclear powers, radiation powers
mutant powers, super pow--
At the end of the day, god damn it, I'm killing this bitch
sick and tired of this wack as villainous shit
ignorant tryin' to threaten these innocent kids
let me tell you what the end of this business is
how they doin'? They ain't survivin'
I drank my super soldier serum, now I'm wylin'
where them evil bitches? Hunh? Where they hidin'?
I got the power, fightin' me is suicide, man

Na-na-na-Now this'll be a beautiful death
Tryin' to fight this hero
you are just a zero
give it up an go home ....

We missed your writing man-this creative section of stuff was dying preeetty hard.

I don't recall-have you ever put up a song here? It was fun to read-now that I've been trying to write something NOT angsty I can't really come up with much-but it's good to see someone can-especially something that flows.

I got into writing completely through writing raps back in highschool. Made the leap to poetry more generally, and then to fiction. Since I've been in college, I've gotten into the spoken word performance thing.


The thing with performance poetry, though, is that it's usually more about the presentation than the words, which always bugs me, because while I enjoy a good performance (to give and receive), I'm decidedly text based. And one of the ways people boost their performance is by just trying to be really passionate about some issue in the news, or in their backstory, or something that will make people feel some kind of way about stuff. And it's often really depressing stuff (or romance, or, more likely, sex). So you hear a lot about how people had issues because of their parents, or because of their complexion, or because of religion, or because of the police, or what's happening in Egypt, or what happened to Sean Bell, etc.

And my MO as a poet somehow became to go against all that. I'm usually not jumping around, using ridiculous hand gestures, some stupid "poetry voice," or most of the other poetry tropes. And I try to write about stuff that's not so heavy. And that's written well.

Also, though, as this is a parody track, it's a bit difficult to get too creative with the rhyme scheme and stuff. It is, after all, in someone else's style.

I think i have posted a song. Wait, you mean, like, recorded, or as text? I think I've got some rap verses here as text.

As for writing non-angsty, write about what you like. There's nothing wrong with a poem or song about DMC, or that girl you're crushing on that doesn't know it, or your shoe collection. Hell, it doesn't even have to be positive. I've written many a verse just about how much I hate poetry cliches. I wrote a verse about how much I like to drink and what happens when I do (for anyone interested, it's generally equal parts disaster and fail). Half the time I just write nonsense rhymes, just because I like the fun of arranging them rhythmically and seeing what meaning other people might apply to them. Or you can focus on what it is you like about writing and make the piece just express that, even if it has another topic.

Well-to most of what I've seen lately, your style is definitely a breath of fresh air. :p And I think this is very well done, even for just a parody-mind the last verse not as much...but still.

This is incredibly awesome. I love it. I would love to hear this rapped with a deep beat in the background.
