“Somebody Blew Up America,” was written in 2003;
There was an angry reaction from the Gov. --- Jim McGreevy.
“Fire the poet!” was the Legislature’s hue and cry.
A vote came up to fire the poet; all present voted, “Aye”.
“My free speech rights are violated”, the poet herein stated.
Unfortunately his plight is not to be further debated.
Hence and forthwith, Amiri’s journey has become moot.
The DC Nine will not hear this Poet’s Legal Suit.
While I don’t know if this was the best solution;
Perhaps the biggest loser was the US Constitution.
