'Totally like whatever, you know?' analysis
I like this poem because Tailor Mali wants to get us thinking about what has happened with society. This poem makes you think, it gives you a critical perspective on the society of today. How we are not able to form real sentences and we seem to be inarticulate. How we can not be cool by being smart but by not expressing your thoughts. He wants us to speak without 'Instant messenger language' with repeatedly using words like, like, whatever, you know after each sentence and totally. These words have no real meaning to Taylor Mali because they have no weight and no backup. Taylor wants, well actually challenge, you to speak with meaningful words, to say your thoughts and speak up because with what has happened to us and the world around us we need more people with meaningful speeches and meaningful ideas.
