The only thing more elitist than Libby Alexander's poem, was Ruth Miriam Garnett's critique of the it.

(If I were Ms's Alexander and Garnett, I might reply thusly.

You call me an elitist?

Is Michael Jordan an elitist?
Is Kurt Warner an elitist?
Is Muhammad Ali an elitist?
Is Barak Obama an elitist?

If winning is elitist
Then yea
I am an elitist.

They are professional poets and if that is a fault then so damn Homer, Shakespeare, Whitman and others nobody understands!

For myself I would have preferred David Banner or the Notorious BIG, by the way.

Get hip. Get the Norton Book of Modern Poetry and catch up to what has been happening since about oh, 1860
