Slam Poetry 101

I've been watching a lot of slam poetry lately. I like the energy that these poets bring to the audience and the messages that they convey. In this clip, a teacher is snubbed by a lawyer based on how much money he makes. He is infuriated by the adage "if you can't do, you teach," and fires back with a tantalizing poem.

Wow, I often don't like slam poetry cuz of the goofy cadence and such, but this one was dope.
