Never doing that again.. well, never say never

I enrolled in a speech class this term. We had to form in a group of 3 and needed to find things that we have in common and present it to the class. I volunteered myself to speak last. My introduction for the first day was a crack up. I pretty much did stand up, working with what i had. Everyone ate it up.

I really want to form a speech about something i'm passionate about. One example the professor gave was one time a guy talked about legalizing prostitution. I was thinking about ranting about the classes we people have placed ourselves in and what it was like before the introduction of class through money. Yeah, it's something like socialism, but when you have people starving to death on one side and on the other they're playing Polo on ELEPHANTS, there's something rotten in the state of Denmark. Cash rules everything around me. C.R.E.A.M get the money. Dollar dollar bill ya'll

Then there's talk of the politicians we can all hear. The censorship put over truth. Real world dilemmas like Darfur, Vietnam, Israel and Palestine, so on.

Here's the twist. I aim to make all my speeches into a performance such as those on Def Poetry Jam.
