Mooshell Skank Obama stoops to another low

Here’s an opportunity to relive your high-school poetry classes.


First Lady Michelle Obama has scheduled a poetry evening for
Wednesday, and she’s invited several poets, including a successful
Chicago poet and rapper, Lonnie Rashid Lynn, Jr., AKA “Common.” However,
Lynn is quite controversial, in part because his poetry includes
threats to shoot police and at least one passage calling for the
“burn[ing]” of then-President George W. Bush.


Back in 2003, First Lady Laura Bush held a poetry evening, and she
invited several poets to reprise the work of Emily Dickinson, Langston
Hughes and Walt Whitman. Although none of those poets had urged violence
against a president, Bush canceled the event after left-of-center poets
protested and threatened to disrupt the event.


Here’s a sample of Dickinson’s work that could have been presented at Bush’s event:


I’m nobody! Who are you?


I’m nobody! Who are you?


Are you nobody, too?


Then there’s a pair of us — don’t tell!


They’d banish us, you know.


How dreary to be somebody!


How public, like a frog


To tell your name the livelong day


To an admiring bog!


Here’s a sample of Common’s work, transcribed from a 2007 video with
837,613 viewers on YouTube. Students, please compare and contrast the
two poems. You’ll get extra credit for counting the death threats. There
is no extra credit for identifying spelling errors. By the way, ‘Uzi’
is slang for a compact machine gun:


A Letter to the Law


Dem boy wanna talk… [indistinguishable]


Whatcha gon do if ya got one gun?


I sing a song for the hero unsung


with faces on the mural of the revolution


No looking back cos’ in back is what’s done


Tell the preacher, god got more than one son


Tell the law, my Uzi weighs a ton


I walk like a warrior,


from them I won’t run


On the streets, they try to beat us like a drum


In Cincinnati, another brother hung


A guinea won’t see the sun


with his family stung


They want us to hold justice


but you handed me none


The same they did to Kobe and Michael Jackson


make them the main attraction


Turn around and attack them


Black gem in the rough


You’re rugged enough


Use your mind and nine-power, get the government touch


Them boys chat-chat on how him pop gun


I got the black strap to make the cops run


They watching me, I’m watching them


Them dick boys got a lock of cock in them


My people on the block got a lot of pok* in them


and when we roll together


we be rocking them to sleep


No time for that, because there’s things to be done


Stay true to what I do so the youth dream come


from project building


Seeing a fiend being hung


With that happening, why they messing with Saddam?


Burn a Bush cos’ for peace he no push no button


Killing over oil and grease


no weapons of destruction


How can we follow a leader when this a corrupt one


The government’s a g-unit and they might buck young black people


Black people In the urban area one


I hold up a peace sign, but I carry a gun.


Peace, ya’ll.”

You!

    Just when you thought there were no lows left.

    This woman (for I am too honest a person to call her any kind of "lady", first or not) has no class, no discernment, no grace and no wisdom, whatsoever.

    She should hang a poster of this behind the poets while they are doing their reading. No class at all is what is living in our WH.
