A Sonnet for Psy

Start here

A weird internet thing happened and a South Korean rapper grabbed the attention of America in 2012. This is for Psy, whose “Whompum Gangnam Style” — or whatever it says— made it popular to be mysterious. Actually, who knows what the hell he’s been saying? Does it matter? Probably not.

A South Korean rapper is king

He’s taking the virtual world by storm

From every boombox, the jam is sounding

Inside the bar I ducked in to get warm

Everywhere we go, your song is playing

A great phenomenon, the reasons why

Nobody understands what you are saying

And not even sure how to pronounce “Psy”

Placed in the “one hit wonder” iTunes file

With the “Macarena” and “Bust a Move”

We wonder, “what the hell is ‘Gangnam Style’?”

We wonder, “what are you trying to prove?”

With the most famous song we can mention

’bout getting sexy ladies’ attention

The most famous weirdo from overseas.

The most famous weirdo from overseas.
