And here’s Jabari Greer’s poetic response to Boutygate

Not sure how we can preface this so we’ll just come right out with it.

Jabari Greer wrote a poem about Bountygate for the The Times Picayune.  We don’t know if it’s good or bad, all we know is Jabari Greer wrote a poem about Bountygate for the The Times Picayune.

But before we turn let Greer turn this post into Def Poetry Jam, we are obligated to give you Greer’s disclaimer about his poem:

Although some of the allegations brought before us are true. We are men of integrity that play the game the way it’s meant to played … with undeniable passion. We are all professionals, with families and a future.  We play a violent game, but we NEVER intend to hurt anyone.

As for some of the media’s representation of our men, The Times Picayune  are the good guy’s (wink).


Please bear with me …

As a child my heart longed for the lights of the stage,

And to all my dreams, life deemed them true.

But while young, I suppose, that the path that I chose,

Was a rockier road than I knew.

My Father explained that although dreams may change,

“To your heart and your two hands be true,”

When the spotlight is on, you still be my son,

But to others, you’ll never be you.

And now here i am, a man of my own,

My dreams, although tried, they came true.

The words of a man, called to lead me to stand,

In the midst of Life’s pain, lead me through.

It’s seemed that I’ve learned, although rightfully earned,

That in darkness, the light shines the truth,

Call it “Bounty” or blame, the world puts to shame,

And convicts, what the world barely knew.

See the media feeds, and puts words to their seeds,

To fulfill it’s own pride and it’s lust,

It calls a King “Thief, he’s possessed by his greed,”

As if what he has earned is not enough.

So be careful of seeds filled with lies and deceit,

Although clothed as a beacon of truth,

We have souls of good men, called to Serve and Defend,

NEW ORLEANS, from the forces untrue.


For real? This is what it’s come to?
