My Dinner with Yeats

So at dinner this evening, MD rapped:

I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made:
Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honeybee,
And live alone in the bee-loud glade.

throwing in many "Yo!"s and such, ending with "peace out" for authenticity. She's doing a poetry unit in school. MD is not a rap fan but her teacher had claimed this wasn't rappable. MD is not one to back down from a challenge.

So, was this a cunning plan on the teacher's part to make the poetry more "now"?

Oh that's too much. Did it make you want to get up and sway back and forth?

Is that how one "dances" to rap? I pretty ignorant.

I'm no expert, but I think it's one way. (hunch your shoulders) Ask MD, she appears to be knowledgeable.

It may not be good, but it sure was fun. I guess you can "rap" anything and I could just hear her do it.

I'll see if can get her to do it again while I record...

Cool. Please do so.
