My lovely wife, mostly lovely son, and I went to a local brew pub recently (Milly's Tavern in Manchester) to check out a poetry slam held in honor of the pre-NH Primary Republican events. A good time was had by all, even if MTV News missed the point of the gathering. I taped you a couple of excerpts.
Emily B., high school student and veteran slammer.
This one was inspired by Crazy-Man Also-Ran Rick Santorum.
"Toast: A Political Poem"
More on Santorum. He was pretty popular among the slammers.
