Are you looking for Cynthia, the master piece of slam poetry in 22 Jump Street? If so, you’ve come to the right place!
Who wrote the slam poem “Cynthia”?
For people who don’t know (then why are you here anyway?), the poem titled Cynthia was composed by Schmidt, Jonah Hill’s character in 22 Jump Street. It was meant to be a requiem for a young girl named Cynthia, who died from a drug overdose.
Now, you might hate me for saying this, but the poem itself is not that good. It was created for comedic purposes after all. However, through Schmidt’s excellent delivery, some might even find it profound. Whatever your opinion is, I’m sure you’re here for the poem. So without further ado, I present to you:
Cynthia by Schmidt from 22 Jump Street
Yelling – Angry!
Waving my hands a lot
Specific point of view on things
Cynthia — sin-THI-a
Jesus died for our Cynthia’s
Jesus cried, runaway bride
Julia Roberts, Julia ROB… hurts
You are dead
Be boop beep you’re dead
Here’s the performance from the poet himself.
So that’s the slam poem Cynthia from 22 Jump Street. It’s a funny poem, in a funny movie. If you’re into funny poems, you might want to check out these posts:
