To the Boys Who May One Day Date My Daughter
[with Adendum] by, Jesse Parent
In spite of the abuse You Tube has suffered over recent years, I think it’s possibly the greatest invention since the PC, because, You Tube can bring presentations such as this directly into my home! Jesse Parent’s slam is, in my opinion, the epitome of great poetry — where the written word becomes spoken and effectively conveys an array of human emotions that are so intense, I get to my feet to cheer! I’m ready to grab a pitchfork and join him in his quest to defend!
This poem is honest, beautiful, violent, and funny as hell! It is modern poetry at its finest.
Meanwhile, in my little corner of the world, I’m behind on posting my contributions to APAD but I’ll catch up later today. RL stuck it’s nose in yesterday, shortly after I worked my way through a frenzy of inspiration for the April Week One prompt for Brigit’s Flame. (You can read along if you wish — it’s under the tab designated for Brigit’s Flame Entries.) I intend to play all month long and hope I get to read a lot of work from new writers!
