Must See Video: 1 Minute Poem Destroys Michele Bachmann

Sierra Demulder at the WOWPS 2013

This one minute poem entitled “To Michele Bachmann” is performed by Sierra DeMulder at the Women of the World Poetry Slam 2013 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Sierra was a finalist, and this video performance was a preliminary round.

I’ve never heard a one minute poem or monologue that was so emotional, maddening, effective, and just plain brilliant. It’s worth taking a minute of your time to watch and listen.

About the Women of the World Poetry Slam 2013:

It is the largest gathering of women slam poets in the country, said event coordinator Allison Broeren.
"Slam poetry is kind of like the Olympic sport of talking," Broeren said. "Since we actually have judges, like figure skating-wise, handing out scores zero to 10, ranking people like that. And every room is different and every panel of judges is different, so it's really like a competition sport that way."
I hope that Rep. Michele ‘Bozo’ Bachmann was/is listening.

straight talk in a queer world.

I want to say thanks for commenting. I don’t think people say ‘thanks’ often enough and I know that it’s a big step to go from “lurker” to “participant”. It means a lot to me that you decided to take the time to comment on a post, and join the conversation here. I think we have a great community and your presence can only make it stronger.
