the originator

By LaTasha N. Nevada Diggs
here’s the remedy for your chronic whiplash —
           coming to you via triple ones on a mission —
                        pop a wheelie for originators of the flash.
                                        check ya dial, emboss the rock b4 a fella dip dash.                                                      grand to slam a party — peep two needles in collision:
                                         here’s the remedy for your chronic whiplash.
                         flare your dome w/ a pinch of cheeba succotash—
           got my avenue peaking rapid circumcision —
pop a wheelie for originators of the flash.
           ululate the call; gods never caught tongue-lash — 
                          tweak an EQ. my hash sparks double vision:
                                          here’s the remedy for your chronic whiplash.
                                                     got my tambourine for ya partner. pass the calabash.
                                           smile for the DJ when the cut spits — peep the precision.                            pop a wheelie for originators of the flash —
           never fret what the beat can establish in the trash.
master meter on Orion, starship blast w/ supervision:
           here’s the remedy for your chronic whiplash —                                
                      pop a wheelie for originators of the flash.
