tapos na po.
i'll recite a poem, so long.
i'll sit down. it's done.
this is probably the
coolest eight words of any single poetry i've
ever saeen. it projects command & power while
still showing some respect and humility (in the
form of 'po'). then you could say it's a
rebellion as he says one thing and does the other
(from a proposed long oratory to a short-lived
one). this has been a joke for so long now, and
it's not really funny because it's not really
intended to be really funny. it is probably in
rebellion of those grade schools against their
teachers who make them write poems like they're
all natural-born poets, but only the greatest of
their kiss-ass classmates gets all the credit. by
the way, if you know the origin of this verse or
its author, please email me.
