Fun on Friday #60: Taylor Mali

I was surprised to discover that I have never written about Taylor Mali here before. He is a performance poet and it's probably best to let him speak for himself:

He was (is?) a teacher and decided he would try and recruit 1000 new people to the teaching profession. This poem was a part of that campaign.

Have a look on YouTube as there are other poems of his available there including one on proofreading.

What is your favourite poem of his? Or are there any other performance poets out there that are worth looking at?
