“We Real Cool” By Gwendolyn Brooks Theme: Gwendolyn Brooks in “We Real Cool” points out that even though living like it is your last day may be fun, we can realize the consequences far too late, through rhythm, repetition, and imagery. Element #1: Rhythm - “We real cool. We Left school.” (3-4) Here we see the rhythm accentuate the word we, showing community and possibly even peer pressure. - “We Lurk late. We Strike straight.” Here the syllables line up and strike hard into minds. Element #2: Repetition - Throughout the poem we see the word ‘we’ repeating, acting as a refresh to every line. Element #3: Imagery - “Seven at the Golden Shovel”
