Tonight we examine Howl, and it's effects on amerikkkan freedoms of speech, banned books and muckracking inpoetic fashion. Every dissident poet since Howl was written was born on that day, let's celebrate 50 years plus of resistance in word! We will be showcasing the poetry of revolution and the revolution of poetry. Poetry, in and of itself, is the divine voice of humanity. Any act of poetic voice is the act of revolution. We are not talking about sing-songing hallmark fukkups like billy collins. Do Not Be Fooled! Poetry will anger those in control, everytime. There is no room for Sambo-ing a verse.
