Shut up and listen: Girls who read

Hello world.

Here’s a little something to take you into the weekend with a smile on your face.

Mark Grist is his name, and he is a teacher-turned-poet/battle-rapper. His prepubescent opponents show up in trackies and snapbacks, while Mark arrives in a crisp suit – his deadly wit lying in wait. What follows is a rap battle of note, sending all of his competition off with their tails between their legs.

As well as his epic battles, his poetry has garnered quite the following on Youtube. My favourite (shown to me by my mother – Thanks mommy!) and the video that you need in your life today, is a poem called Girls Who Read. Insightful and sweet, and a slap on the wrist for every chauvinistic pig you know.

Happy Friday!
