CJ Leslie DAYUM: Future Poet Laureate

CJ Leslie DAYUM: Future Poet Laureate

Surprisingly, I can't even find an OT post of this in the MGoBoard history, but what better day to acknowledge the academic pursuits of CJ Leslie than the day we play NC State. I don't really think this needs much of an introduction but here goes: CJ Leslie, NC State's forward and the main reason for their lofty preseason ranking, took a freshman poetry course last year and the assignment below is the result.

Bonus points for use of double entendre, even if it is...like...the easiest and most obvious one to use.

She Finally Came

Cj Leslie

Eng 289


she was hesitant…

about the lack of time we spent.

she said, "i barely know you,


i'm kinda sick."

i said

"calm down

… only as friends."

i waited it out,

and tried it again.

this time only to find out

that we had work til 10!


where did I go wrong?

just tryna find a beneficial friend…

i'm starting to think these excuses


other men…

the next time she cancelled,

it was for an emergency.


this chick is really avoiding me…

then i got a text.



she finally came.


and over, and over, and over….
