Hello fellow writers and friends. Sorry the post is a day late, had some issues with my internet service provider but hopefully am back in business now.
Anyway, for today I want to encourage you to write a poem about social issues. I have provided for you a favorite song/poem by spoken word/indie artist icon Ani DiFranco. She is, perhaps, one of my favorite musicians. She writes the kind of music that is pleasing to the ear, but even more so refreshing/informing to the inquiring mind. Many people have said that although they love her voice and the accompanying music, they listen to Ani for her words. I can't say I disagree.
Listen to the song below and read the lyrics.
