So I was sitting there watching the inauguration. I missed the swearing in and most of the speech because I was in class. So i got back to my room and settled in and then it was announced that a poem would be read. I could tell the woman was nervous and I felt kind of bad for her. Anyway, I put this to you fellow RedState users. Did anyone know what the heck this woman was talking about? I admit that I know nothing about poetry, whether how to write it or understand it. Maybe it is because I don’t hang out at Starbucks enough, but it just doesn’t do anything for me. I was expecting something complimentary of Obama or liberalism but instead I didn’t get it at all. At one point I said to my roommate “Did she just say our tongues were on our ancestors?” Maybe Obama understood it since he is a genius according to Michael Beschloss, but I doubt many others did.
