Def Poetry - Common - A Letter To The Law

Here’s a sample of Dickinson’s work that could have been presented at Bush’s event:

I’m nobody! Who are you?

I’m nobody! Who are you?

Are you nobody, too?

Then there’s a pair of us — don’t tell!

They’d banish us, you know.

How dreary to be somebody!

How public, like a frog

To tell your name the livelong day

To an admiring bog!

Aboveis a sample of Common’s work, transcribed from a 2007 video with 837,613 viewers on YouTube.
