February 20: Stone Soup's Open Mic Ode to The Sore Winners of The World


Stone Soup Poetry meets every Monday from 7-9 p.m. every Monday at the Out of The Blue Art Gallery, now at its new location at 541 Massachusetts Avenue in Central Square Cambridge, Massachusetts. On February 20, come to our open mic and read along to this week's theme (or read whatever work you like).

For all the talk of special snowflakes and young people who can't accept not getting what they want, there are more and more people from prior generations who get everything they want but still want to maintain their status as persecuted underdogs. The very definition of a sore winner. Maybe you've seen one or two on the news lately?
 
Join Stone Soup this Monday
on February 20 and bring your own ode to these fragile egos and the gold crosses they get nailed to with the help soon-to-be deported immigrants. Or ignore the theme altogether and read anything you like! You have five minutes!

What would you say in the 100% unlikely event they would give  you the mic? Come out tonight and let your voice be heard for just a fraction of the advertising money spent last night.

ecucation.

&slammers influence me.

the university of words.

for brevity,
nativity,
& hopefully,
longevity.'
