About the speaker

“Words Create WorLds”

Jabari is a Poet, though most may not Gnō* It. He keeps his words Simple, he understands they are Symbols.

To a WorLd often Hidden, in signs long since Written. Through teaching he Earns, by living he Learns.

For the WorLd is our Class, and living is our Task. He asks the hard Questions, for each answer’s a Lesson

His medium is English, it’s syntactically Seamless. His tools are the Word, the noun and the Verb

His prose are in Rhyme, deceptively Sublime. His flow is a Habit, it’s multi-Syllabic.

Wrapped in a Riddle, these Words are his Fiddle. He can lead you Astray, with what he may Say.

He can brighten your Beam, he can uplift your Esteem. He can conjure and Capture, he can catch and Enrapture.

He can beguile and Amuse, with the Words he may Choose. You might think it’s Babel, a madman’s wise Ramble.

Or maybe he’s Wise, but who can Surmise? The point here is This, so try not to Miss.

All that he can Do, he knows you can Too.

*Gnō(sis) is Greek for Knowledge Phonetically similar to “Know”
