“A Savage Yawp” at Easy Bay Meeting House

“A Savage Yawp” happens to be the first poem I ever published (in the 2011 Poetry Matters anthology). After looking through old poems, I decided to rewrite it in my modern style, a more spoken-word-laden piece concerning the public education system and the notion that tests can determine futures. Listen to both versions and give your thoughts below.

I hope this offers some insight into particularly the philosophy of education expounded by South Carolina public schools.
