A poetry slam of a different kind

I was recently accused of having never done anything for my country. This may be true. As an English teacher, it’s often difficult to take my peculiar skill set out into the real world, what with the decadent lifestyle of a professor at a Research 1 institution like mine.  When you are a member of power-elite like me, dropping nuggets of wisdom like so many water balloons from the pinnacle of my ivory tower, you wonder, “How can I make a difference? I mean a real difference in the lives of the little, unimportant people? One that they’ll have a chance of understanding?” It’s tough, let me tell you.

Then it hit me. The Internet is a vast repository of unreadable prose and poetry.  Surely I could ply my trade to make the Internet just a little bit more pleasant. With that in mind, I knew exactly where I could make the most difference–the public forums of Alex Jones’ Prison Planet. And there it was, a whole world just begging for me to improve it. My first effort is for a poem called “Stand.”

    And how is this making things better? You don’t teach anything, you are doing exactly what the OP is writing against (maybe except for the honest part ;)). So what if it’s biased, so what if it’s not ‘proper English’. At least he/she (but I’m guessing it’s a he) voices an opinion, at least he takes a stand. You truly want to do something. Stop bitchin’ and read between the lines. Educate yourself, you supposedly educated man.
    Unkind regards from Holland.

    I miss white supremacist poetry slam. This post brings back memories.

    All I have to say is, boy, do I just love, commas, you know, what I’m saying?

    And Demian, I don’t think the good professor was bitching. He’s just using his skill set (being a master of the English language) to help this particular writer. He obviously needs all the help he can get. Got to think globablly, but act locally. Plus, proper grammer is a rarity in times like these. The world needs more English professors.

    Wow, you’re a self-important pompous prick. Good luck with that. And yeah, you’ve never done anything for your country.

    Very amusing. Right now I’m having fun trolling a woo-merchant at the 9/11 posting you did. Thats something I’m doing for all mankind.

    Please tell me that you don’t consider Stunk & White anything but a waste of paper. Surely you of all be people couldn’t have been taken in by the S&W conspiracy?
