Nominate the Ones You Love

posted by on September 16 at 13:27 PM

Did you know that Seattle has a Poet Populist? It’s true. And you’ll be able to vote for them online starting next week. I have a proposition for someone who’s maybe got a little free time, though. I think you should go to this website and nominate The Blue Scholar’s Geologic for Poet Populist.

He came in 6th place last year, and that was as a write-in candidate. Now is the time, people. Somebody step up and give us a poet populist we can all get behind. Send part of “Joe Metro” as the sample poem. It’s some of the best poetry written in the last few years about Seattle. Plus, it rhymes. Which is very populist.

Geologic gets more than enough love as a rapper. Let's leave this contest for the poets. It's not like we have much else.

Geo was actually a poet before, during and after being a rapper. He deserves some credit for that.

He was? Has no one explained the concept of meter to the man? His syllable cramming is a pretty big drag.
