Marathon motivation

So, we'll take the motivation where we can get it. We set goals and with huge anticipation countdown to the big events.
The big day is just around the corner. October 7, (Marathon Sunday in Chicago, Portland, Minneapolis and St. Paul) is 17 days 20 hours 40 minutes and change away as I type this.
And there's a poetry slam here in Springfield in 8 days.
What's a poetry slam? If I do this right, you should be able to see of our country's best slam poets (best poets period) in the space below these words. My friends, Anis Mojgani:

"You have been given a direct order to rock...."

I don't think they're the country's best poets, period.

well, it's just my opinion that anis is pretty good.

he's definitely better than a lot of other slam poets.

but i'm always into learning about new poets. who are some that are better? and on what basis do you make that distinction?

And to be clear, I'm not talking about all slam poets, just Anis.

you're welcome.

i simply posted the poems because i thought they were a little motivational.

maybe i got a bit carried away in my introduction, but then again, maybe not. :)
