Well I waited wayyyy to long to pick out a poem for a dramatic reading for my speech class tomorrow! Does the Pit have any ideas? It has to be 3 minutes long and it has to be clean!

Read some Alice in Chains in hopes that whoever is grading you will kill themselves....

My answer to any of these kind of questions:

"Manifesto: The Mad Farmer Liberation Front" by Wendell Berry

Love the quick profit, the annual raise,
vacation with pay. Want more
of everything ready-made. Be afraid
to know your neighbors and to die.
And you will have a window in your head.
Not even your future will be a mystery
any more. Your mind will be punched in a card
and shut away in a little drawer.
When they want you to buy something
they will call you. When they want you
to die for profit they will let you know.

So, friends, every day do something
that won't compute. Love the Lord.
Love the world. Work for nothing.
Take all that you have and be poor.
Love someone who does not deserve it.
Denounce the government and embrace
the flag. Hope to live in that free
republic for which it stands.
Give your approval to all you cannot
understand. Praise ignorance, for what man
has not encountered he has not destroyed.

Ask the questions that have no answers.
Invest in the millenium. Plant sequoias.
Say that your main crop is the forest
that you did not plant,
that you will not live to harvest.
Say that the leaves are harvested
when they have rotted into the mold.
Call that profit. Prophesy such returns.

Put your faith in the two inches of humus
that will build under the trees
every thousand years.
Listen to carrion - put your ear
close, and hear the faint chattering
of the songs that are to come.
Expect the end of the world. Laugh.
Laughter is immeasurable. Be joyful
though you have considered all the facts.
So long as women do not go cheap
for power, please women more than men.
Ask yourself: Will this satisfy
a woman satisfied to bear a child?
Will this disturb the sleep
of a woman near to giving birth?

Go with your love to the fields.
Lie down in the shade. Rest your head
in her lap. Swear allegiance
to what is nighest your thoughts.
As soon as the generals and the politicos
can predict the motions of your mind,
lose it. Leave it as a sign
to mark the false trail, the way
you didn't go. Be like the fox
who makes more tracks than necessary,
some in the wrong direction.
Practice resurrection.
The medium is the message!

I think that Steve Earle's "Warrior" is waiting to be turned into a dramatic reading. First stanza (if I can remember it correctly):

This is the best time of day, the dawn;
the final cleansing breath unsullied yet
by acrid fumes or death's caucophony;
the rank refuse of unchained ambition.
And pray: deny me not, but know me now!
Your faithful retainer stands resolute to serve his liege lord
without recompense, perchance to fall and perish namelessly.
No flag draped bier or muffled drum to set the cadence
for a final dress parade.
But it was not always thus! Rember,
Once you worshipped me, and named me a God,
in many tongues lest I exact too terrible a tribute.

Earle delivers it beautifully in the recording...it's haunting and powerful. The rest is just as good.

Quote by Shea Donoghue


Then, about two minutes later of just plowing, I can feel it coming. She's still moaning and rolling back, and then I pull out. I grab her by her hair, pull her head up, and yell out:
"BOOM, HEADSHOT!"

The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe, perfect for dramatization. You start out slow and steady and then eventually explode into rage like someone slipping into madness.

I did a Comfortably Numb dramatic reading. It actually turned out pretty well. You can do the chorus in almost a different voice to really drive it home...

But if I had a chance to do it again... I would so do Baby got Back
