If my hair were a tree I’d climb it.It’s a beautiful testimony to Black boys’ hair, gives Josh’s character more depth and with the last two lines also manages to move the story forward. The rhymes are nothing special, of course, but I still really enjoy and appreciate the poem.
I’d kneel down beneath and enshrine it.
I’d treat it like gold and then mine it.

And right before games I entwine it.
These locks on my head, I designed it.
And one last thing if you don’t mind it:
That bet you just made? I DECLINE IT.
