New experiment - song lyrics as performance poems? Maybe

Yup I did it. I went and played a song in the poetry/acoustic open mic at Wednesday Night Poetry. . It was a fun night with many different readers.
Sandra Ebner was the feature and Slam Pappy Steve Marsh warmed up the room for her with a 10 minute play on My Fair Lady starring the NeoCons, McCain & Palin.. (Hilarious.)
Earlier I played one song and read one poem during the open mic. - but later I had an epiphany -- some, not all, but some of my songs would make GREAT SLAM POEMS..... I will be working on this idea....to painlessly get ready for the NorthBeast Regionals which Zork has asked me to compete in again this year. Very cool! This was the day my dad was born. It was a good day all in all.
