Oy PaperBoi

AtlantaGood morning o’ neighbor, dear WordPress kin,
I’m back on the subject of PaperBoi again.

I like him and his cousin Earnie, his friends Darius and Tracey too.
I’m into exploiting the schemes, their dreams and the things that they go through

because the episodes are packed with potential to teach someone a lesson.
The fact that PaperBoi didn’t die in episode 9 was a miraculous blessin.’

Did you see it?
The luck of PaperBoi; I wouldn’t want to be it.

I love the show and the cast of members
who pull me back into the south and its consequences…I remember.

Season 2, episode 8 of the ATLANTA series
PaperBoi went to get a pedicure and ended up in trees.

A forested scene showed up when he decided to walk home from the salon.
It was a half-thought-out idea because he needed to get his ‘clear mind‘ on.

In route, he ran into 3 dudes on a cruise who attempted to beat him black and blue.
It’s true and PaperBoi was solid on delivering those 1’s and 2’s.

Via his handy-work, a can of whip-ass was unleashed
and that’s what lead him to run through the trees.

After fighting off the 3 dudes including one firing a gun
an immediate run through the forest seemed to be safer fun

as well as a reasonably good effort to get away from them.
PaperBoi’s life is full of circumstantial hem.

With a shiner on his upper cheek and blood in his mouth
he was still his even-keeled self, with no time to wince or pout.

As he submerged himself into the forests’ fist
he met a homeless man who wasn’t sure if he’d let him live.

The homeless man had mental health issues and such,
it appeared he was in the thick creating deer guts.

Yes. He had a box-cutter and was suffering a mentally-ill head;
he was slicing deer at the bowels and the deer would drop dead.

Upon discovering PaperBoi in the woods, lip bleeding, and cheek cut –
the homeless man started to stalk PaperBoi – calling him “deer guts.”

The man was nuts. PaperBoi asked the homeless man to ‘please not follow!’,
the homeless man put the box-cutter to PB’s throat; making it hard to swallow.

It was some truly hairy stuff.
PaperBoi started to tear up – but he was not cut.

The homeless man didn’t relent but kept the box-cutter at his throat.
PaperBoi had just dodged a bullet in the street and this was like ‘whoa!’

So, he took a chance and fell backward – away from the blade at his throat.
Then he ran through the lush green as if he was a starved and grazing goat.

He did not eat the green, but he didn’t let the forest eat him either.
Had my dad’s life not been so comparably wild,  I’d call the writers outliers.

The show is crazy fantastic; though the stories still ring real.
I’ve got a thing for PaperBoi and Donald Glover’s ATLANTA appeal.

That was episode 8, don’t get me started on episode 9,
but PB, Darius, Earnie, and Tracy wandered across a culture line.

A frat pajama party that PaperBoi was due to perform
lead him to a frat house with a Confederate flag, major weed, and little alarm.

Did you happen to see the show?
It’s about trees, again – but the one folks blow.

Oy PaperBoi and cousin Earnie! It’s a pleasure for me to dig your style,
I’m Qui
Missing the south but no reason to pout, for your series, is relatively wild!

Atlanta

Earnest, Darius, and PaperBoi in ATLANTA

Goodness, gracious, I do love that series ATLANTA.
I watch it by my lonesome for no unnecessary co-banter.

The writers keep a handle on what’s real in the hood.
I laugh, I get a little nervous, but in the end – it’s all good.

The situations? Some are new but most are relatable and well understood.
I live in the southwest, but I originated from a third coast hood.

Atlanta is good cultural food for me in the desert lands of Arizona.
FX gives the best ride of a laid-back vibe from the south upon ya.’

Have you been watching? I’m certainly a PaperBoi fan.
When an opportunity is in the air, he strives to catch it if he can.

Often times, he misses.
Still, his bars are full of dope disses

and he remains largely popular in his hood.
Comedy is at its largest when PB is misunderstood.

There was an episode where PaperBoi was in the backseat
of his hustler man’s car trying to score some weed.

Everything was going alright until
the hustler pulled a gun and -ish got real.

The hustling driver looked in his rearview mirror and said without stall
while pointing a gun into the backseat, “Eh, yo. I’m sorry dawg.”

I’m going to need your bag of cash because my son is sick; today I ain’t selling weed. ‘
Then he asked PaperBoi to get out of his backseat and to relinquish his car keys.

He and hustle man went way back; they had a history that was long.
PaperBoi ended up with dry mouth, empty hands and a sober walk home.

Any chance that you met Bibby? He’s all over episode five or six.
He’s PaperBoi’s barber who’s always in some illicit -ish.

The episode is funny as all get-out, so I won’t say too much
except for it takes an entire episode for PaperBoi to get a haircut.

You would not believe
the day that unfolds– and again with no weed. 🙂

Why is weed a staple in the script?
Because it’s Atlanta and the writers keep it real.

I don’t know, exactly, but I can relate
to what the writers are serving on the FX series plate.

Dip in and DVR the show if you can’t watch it when it airs.
Donald Glover isn’t childish with his gambino – in fact, he’s quite fair.

A successful future, for him, is in the air. I’m glad to be watching.
I’ve set my DVR to record ATLANTA because it’s the vibe that I’m copping.

I’m a southern girl on this Monday morning. I was southern last night before I went to bed.

Awake and refreshed, a good nights sleep is best – after yesterdays soul food meal and cornbread.
