Keisha’s Song (Her Pain) by Kendrick Lamar

[Hook: Ash Riser]
Fancy girls on Long Beach Boulevard
Flagging down all of these flashy cars

[Verse 1]
And Lord knows she’s beautiful
Lord knows the usuals, leaving her body sore

She take the little change she make to fix her nail cuticles
Lipstick is suitable to make you fiend for more

She play Mr. Shakur, that’s her favorite rapper
Bumping “Brenda’s Got a Baby” while a pervert yelling at her

And she capture features of a woman, but only 17
The 7 cars start honking,
she start running like Flo-Jo
Don’t care if they Joe Blow
If they got money to blow a blow job is a sure go

And sure enough don’t see a dime of dirty dollars
She give all to her daddy but she don’t know her father, that’s ironic

See a block away from Lueders Park, I seen the El Camino parked
In her heart she hate it there, but in her mind she made it where
Nothing really matters,
so she hit the back seat
Rosa Parks never a factor when she making ends meet

[Hook]

[Verse 2]
And Lord knows she’s beautiful
Lord knows the usuals, leaving a body sore

Her anatomy is God’s temple
And it’s quite simple, her castle is ‘bout to be destroyed

She’s always paranoid, watching the law inside the streets
Undercover the dummies that look like decoys
Remember the sergeant let her slide, said if he seen
What’s between her thighs he’d compromise, to no surprise
She took the ultimatum ‘round the alleyway and gave him
A warm welcome to fill him right below the navel
Though he was wired up like a pair of jumping cables
His eyes was closed shut, prior charges, he had waived ‘em

It was a block away from Lueders Park, I seen a squad car parked
And in her heart, she hate it there but in her mind, she made it where
Nothing really matters,
so she hit the back seat
Cause Rosa Parks never a factor when she topping off police

[Hook]

[Verse 3]
And Lord knows she’s beautiful
Lord knows the usuals, leaving a body sore

As she bust down like a 12 bunk on tour
She suddenly realized, she’ll never escape the allure
Of the black man, white man, needed satisfaction
At first, it became a practice, but now she’s numb to it

Sometimes she wonder if she can do it like nuns do it
But she never heard of Catholic religion or sinners’ redemption
That sounds foolish,
and you can blame it on her mother
For letting her boyfriend slide candy under her cover
Ten months before she was ten he moved in and that’s when he touched her

This mothafucka is the fucking reason why Keisha rushing through that
Block away from Lueders Park, I seen a El Camino park
And in her heart she hate it there but in her mind, she made it where
Nothing really matters,
still she hit the back seat
And caught a knife inside the bladder, left her dead, raped in the street

Keisha’s song

[Bridge]
My little sister eleven, I looked her right in the face
The day that I wrote this song, set her down and pressed play

[Hook]

Format: Song/Lyrics

Audience: Young Girls and Prostitutes

Purpose: To inform young girls and former prostitutes about how prostitutes feel and what it can do to a woman. To never choose the path of selling your body when you have a bright future ahead of you.

Effectiveness: The song effectively describes the mind of a prostitute and what it can do to a woman. Most people think that women love to be whores that’s why they choose to sell there body. But what most don’t see is behind every prostitute there is a woman that's afraid to show her true self and they don't want this life. A verse in the song says “ And in her heart she hate it there, but in her mind she made it where nothing really mattered.” In the song it talks about a young 17 year old prostitute and what she feel and she feels prostitution is the only way out of the world, in the end she ends up getting killed. The song goes in great detail the life of a prostitute and shows where it can lead you if you choose this path.

Format: Picture

Audience: Those who dont supportgay marriage

Purpose: To argue that people should be allowed to love and marry who they choose, it doesn't matter the gender.

Effectiveness: The picture above effectively achieve the purpose for fighting for gay marriage.In the photo you see a man holding a poster that says “Tell me again: How is my marriage affecting you?” This sends a strong message because who a person marries doesnt affect their neighbors or the lady down the street. Most people think when people of the same sex marry each other, its the end of the world. Love has no limits, so therfore people should be able to choose of they marry and let nobody ruin their happiness.
