TubeWrite: What The Fuck Is A Poet?

Spoken Word Poets and their work have history. Legacies. And some walk an unsavory path to ultimately learn some important life lessons. Nobody, no body ever learned anything - doing it right all the time. Mistakes made. Mistakes paid for. Hopefully without violence.
