Slam

Spoken word

The Nuyorican Cafe

MTV

The 1990’s

Poets

Like Maggie Estep
And Patricia Smith
Jello Biafra & Henry Rollins

All present
All writing

And spreading
The word

Against a system
Against Republicans
And Presidents

Who tried to
Take our rights
And wage wars

Slam

Spoken word

The Nuyorican Cafe

MTV

The 1990s

Shit

Even Charlie Sheen
Was a poet back then

And if you write
If you are brave enough
To speak your mind?

Then you could
Be one too

Just like
Charlie Sheen
