Come In - A Poem

This is a poem featured in Pump Up The Volume. In my opinion it was one of the best movies ever made and this poem (as well as the character who wrote it) was most definitely a pop-culture "game changer" for me. I was 14 when I first heard this piece, and I've been enamored with poetry ever since.

Come In
by Nora (the 'Eat me, Beat me' lady) DiNiro

Every night you enter me like a criminal.
You break into my brain,
but you're no ordinary criminal.
You put your feet up,
you drink your can of Pepsi,
you start to party,
you turn up my stereo.
Songs I've never heard,
but I move anyway.
You get me crazy,
I say 'Do it.'
I don't care what,
just do it.
Jam me, jack me,
push me, pull me
-talk hard!
