Yes! That is exactly the line that sold me on the poem too!

At first I was like "ok sure, this is a good political rant but what's so special about it" and then he hit me with that line and I knew why you picked this out of all the poetry you hear all the time to post.

When I had digital cable, I watched all the episodes of Def Poetry Jam "On Demand". I distinctly remember that poet. They've had so many great guest poets, from Smokey Robinson to Saul Williams.
