It is not enough these days to “Question Authority,” you gotta speak with it too

Taylor Mali at a Def Poetry Jam talking about talking, about talking like you mean it, like you know what you’re talking about, like you are not making a joke or asking a question.

Money quote:

“As society just becomes so filled with these conflicting feelings of ngggggh, that we’ve just gotten to the point where we’re the most aggressively inarticulate generation to come along, since, you know, a long time ago.”

  3. This is the poetry of irony, where he demonstrates in his rant that at which he rants. I think it is intentional.
