An excerpt …

This is a rap song. Set your own beat and have fun. A suggestion - don’t emphasize the rhyme. It will take care of itself.

ACE: (loudly) WHAT THIS IS ABOUT …

TREY: Don’t shout. Don’t shout.

ACE: What this is about is that we gotta pick …

TREY: And it better be slick … slick, slick, slick.

ACE: … We gotta pick a topic for a drama, mama … and not about Obama. No politics or religion … we got to choose what to use in a con-test. And you know the rest.

TREY: Rest? Rest? We can’t … can’t rest till the deed is done.

ACE: And we have won …

TREY: … or at least showed up … I interrupt.

ACE: With no idea, are we done before we begun? (points) Is that a stop light? No …

TREY: It’s go, go, go and we’re goin’ too slow ‘cuz we gotta solve this pup before the second hand says, “Your time is up!”

ACE: We’re looking for any idea. Any.

TREY: He didn’t say many, the word is any.

ACE: (points to audience) If you can think of a link to give us some help. Yelp! Any, any idea that will meet the test …

TREY: … Not another test … I gotta rest from the last one, son.

ACE: The question of this quiz … is …

TREY: To pick a topic that will be good for you, and us.

ACE: We’re in trouble but we’re not under the bus … yet. We just begun this run so we still gotta chance, always a chance.

TREY: Instead of drama, should we do a dance?

ACE: (pause) … no … It’s a drama we need, and we need some speed to choose a topic that fills the time, and it should be good … be good.

TREY: Good.

ACE: The problem is the topic.

TREY: Again?

ACE: Let’s adorn ourselves with drama … no confusion, contusion or illusion … something dramatic from an ancient day.
