We Real Cool” is a short, yet powerful  poem by Gwendolyn Brooks that sends a life learning message to its reader. The  message Brooks is trying to send is that dropping out of school and roaming the streets is in fact not “cool” but in actuality a dead end street. The poem is spoken by a group of seven teenagers hanging out outside a pool hall. These teens present themselves as rebels who skip school, stay out late, and party hard.
