Freewrite: And 2morrow (8-9 AM class)

We read from Rose the poem, And 2morrow (141). We looked at themes: hope, world is bad, change, rage/anger, un/fairness and developed a few thesis sentences using topical invention.

Develop a definition, and analogy, a consequence and post here. Bring in Hacker tomorrow, we will take a grammar quiz.

Post your research essay plans and outlines where indicated. Do the Frontline World assignments where indicated. Ask for help from the librarians and me. Arrange an interview with the person you are profiling today. Develop a few questions for a short interview. Visit the organization or place of business.

Sentences we developed this morning:
Everything in the world is temporary according to Tupac Shakur in his poem, "2morrow,' especially "evil."

change is like a time bomb.

People try to avoid change like a man on parole tries to pretend he isn't wearing an ankle monitor.

definition: something temporary is something that doesn't last forever

analogy: All things are temporary like things that don't last forever

consequence: Because things don't last forever in this world, nothing long lasting can truly exist here. To this extent, all of life is a struggle. Consider eating: how hard is it to find food? To have to constantly be hungry again day after day no matter what you do. And whats more, To have to constantly find a way to nourish yourself day after day no matter what you do.

a definition, and analogy, a consequence

"Today is filled with anger, fueled with hidden hate." (And Tomorrow 141)

Change is like a timebomb, once it goes off, it'll be dynamic and dramatic.

Consequence (cause and effect):
"Children bred with ruthlessness cause no one at home cares." (And Tomorrow)
"Tonight I lay my head down but the pressure never stops,
knowing that my sanity content when I'm droped." (And Tomorrow 141)

Tupac Shakur explains a mindset of fear that "tonight is filled with Rage, violence in the air." (And Tomorrow 141) He continues to wait as "tomorrow I see change, a chance to build a new, build on spirit intent of heart and ideas based on truth." (And Tomorrow 141)
