Poetry in Motion

The title caught my eye first. What’s a vigilante poet? Well, let me tell you. The Vigilante Poets of Selwyn Academy by Kate Hattemer is a witty story about a group of friends Ethan, our narrator, Luke, Jackson and Elizabeth) who rebel against their school being taken over by a reality TV show called  For Art’s Sake. While studying Ezra Pound in English class, the friends are inspired to write a vigilante long poem and distribute it to the student body, detailing the evils of For Art’s Sake.When Luke becomes a contestant on the show, it’s up to Ethan, his two remaining best friends, and a heroic gerbil named Baconnaise to save their school.

And just for fun, because writing this got me thinking about the Pogues’ EP,  Poguetry in Motion,  I thought I’d share my favorite song from that album, A Rainy Night in Soho.
