What Is a ‘Slam Poem’?

Slam Poetry 101: An Introduction — Mud and Ink Teaching

Garbage in, garbage out

Yeesh! Now I know how Pandora felt when she opened the dadburned box–that she shouldn’t have touched!–and all the evils of the world flew out.

It turns out there really is such as thing as “slam poetry,” which got invented when I wasn’t looking. It’s poetry to be read out loud, usually by children (oh, where do I hide?) and usually is meant to display some kind of left-wing twitch somewhere in the brain. Public school “teachers” are really high on this (http://teacheroffduty.com/20-slam-poems-you-can-use-in-your-classroom-tomorrow/). They’ve even got slam competitions.

Roses are red, violets are blue/ I changed my gender, so I’m better than you!

So simple, a 12-year-old can do it.

Parents! Do you honestly, truly, want these kooks “educating” your children? What do they have to do to wake you up? Burn the building down, with the kids still in it? Would that do it?

Kill the culture, and it’ll kill you back. Guaranteed.

  1. My word! The evil just goes on and on. We, the people of God, are supposed to be able to pull down the strongholds in heavenly places. Obviously, we are asleep at the switch.

    1. We definitely have been doing things wrong. We’ve been content to stay behind the four walls of the church and send money to missionaries while our own country crumbles around us. I have nothing against missionaries, but we’ve so busy investing in other countries that we have ignored our own, and now look where we are. We need to get more involved in the culture and in civil affairs. The enemy has had zero resistance because we have stopped being that salt and light.
