This Is Just Some Very Good Homophobic Slam Poetry

Can you hear that sound? It’s the sound of a million fingers snapping. All the cool cats are digging this asshole’s hateful groove! Snap snap snap snap! Snap snap snap! I love that no one involved with this bothered to ask themselves the question: should we just NOT make a video of homophobic slam poetry? Like, considering the limited audience for poetry in general, and the poverty of this medium for truly getting across our hate-filled message, should we maybe do something else with our time? That question was never even raised. The question that was asked was “should we tape this in the woods because poetry?” And the answer was a resounding “OH HELL YEAH.” (Thanks for the tip, Tom.)
