Anyway, I found a good poem today thanks to the Writer's Almanac. It's called "To Be a Danger" and it's by C.G. Hanzlicek:
Just once I'd like to be a dangerPlease read the rest here. And if you're staying up late with me, waiting for the Alaska Senate returns to come in, let me know!
To something in this world,
Be hunted by cops
And forced into hiding in the mountains,
Since if they left me on the streets
I'd turn the country around,
Changing everyone's mind with a word.
