Slam The World
The biggest rebels of the world are those who use elegance and beauty to complain; otherwise known as Poets. I could go on and on about poets but i want to pay more attention to a paticular type of poet. That would be slam poetry. Slam poetry is very intense poems usually with a political message (not politics in specific..Current events). A new found slam poet of mine is Anis Mojgani. He is a native New Orleanian now living in Oregon. I have seen a couple of his slam poetry competitions and also watched him on Russel Simmon's Def Jam Poetry. He his very assertive and his flow is so captivating! So check him out and go look up some of his other poems.
