Sarah Palin revealed to be a slam poet
American senator Sarah Palin had her true identity unmasked yesterday, as it was revealed she is in fact famous slam poet Sandira Pone.
Palin has often been criticised for her loose, rambling and often nonsensical style of rhetoric, with political opponents pointing out that she has rarely said anything that makes sense, either in terms of grammar or practicality. However, her use of figurative language and an inconsistent rhyming scheme is much more in keeping with the traditions of slam poetry.
Pone’s agent announced: “You’d be surprised how many slam poets accidentally turn up at political rallies, without realising they’re in the wrong place. The crowds tend to be pretty similar, and no one’s really listening anyway. After her success on podiums across the nation, Sandira’s return to slam scene is hotly anticipated”
Sandira’s next competition will be at the underground East Brooklyn Slam, where she will be taking on libertarian slam-god extraordinaire Rand ‘Rhymes’ Paul, and former world champion George ‘Words’ Bush.
