"Yo": My Contribution to the Hip Hop Genre

I'm very fond of hip hop, especially the gangsta variety. In listening to hip hop recordings I can't but notice the similarity in cadence to nursery rhymes, although hip hop is usually a touch more staccato than your average nursery rhyme. I've blended the two forms in my short composition "Yo":

hippity hop
to the chop shop
to grandma's house
we go


gonna waste that ho
gonna steal her crack
gonna stuff her corpse
in a gunny sack...
