A POEM

C. "Czui" Lichatz: So, for years I worked for the underground hip-hop label LANDSPEED RECORDS (R.I.P.), and during that time we got lots of demos in the mail, many were just sheets of lyrics (often written by some desperate soul in prison) trying to get a record deal. At one point some kid in NJ was calling us everyday leaving these ridiculous "freestyles" on our voicemail (unfortunately I lost the tape copy I had made of those freestyles), BUT among all the "demo's" we got in the mail at Landspeed records during my time there, this one was the oddest. Written on two crumpled sheets of notebook paper, partially in pencil, partially in ball-point pen (impossible to scan effectively). I translated as best I can, paragraph breaks and capitalization/punctuation are made to emulate the original, although it is actually more random than I typed here (he seems to capitalize every other word), reminds me of SPAM email nonsense, and it helps if you recite it out loud:
