I don't think the poem itself is bad, well said, despite the fact I oppose the message.
Pizza. I have enormous respect for Pizza.

Anyone ever do spoken poetry? I've sold poetry in the past and have toyed with it a little (http://yourlisten.com...). You think it is a good way to promote your poetry?

I would really like to challenge your views on abortion sometime.

Haha, the poem wasn't intended as an argument. But I am certainly willing to defend my position on abortion.

On a more relevant note, do you think such spoken poetry is an effective means of promotion?

Woah!

Well kudos for the bravery of the message.

You have an excellent voice, well suited for this sort of thing. I found that the music did interfere with the speech.

I can't really comment on the 'quality' of the poem as I find such things hard to judge, but I thought it was good.
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

Yeah, I felt like the vocals alone were missing something. I think the music is a little too much as well. Any recommendations?

I liked it.

2 questions:

1) Do you really talk like that was that for narrative effect? lol
2) and, is that Linkin Park?

Well, I talk like that sometimes - especially when I'm trying to articulate a point very clearly. And yes, it was LP. I'm thinking about dropping the music altogether.

I think spoken word is an excellent format.. but its a very specific one, you know? I've never seen spoken word being popular outside of groups that regularly visit trendy cafe's and poetry sessions. Its a pretty small market, but its still very nice.

I'm a part of a writer's group at my school, in which we share and discuss our writing, and I always feel incredibly awkward when someone submits poetry. There's not much to say. Poetry is too personal and subjective to critique, and often, it is short in length. What's more, the market for poetry is much smaller and more competitive than the market for prose, which is already incredibly competitive.

Anyway, your piece reminded me of a David Foster Wallace short entitled "Death Is Not The End." At the time, I really enjoyed it. Perhaps you can derive inspiration from it, or something.

Good, because I think your wildly wrong.

Perhaps... I don't know.
