Health Care Poetry Slam

Wednesday, October 07, 2009

The Takeaway's Femi Oke visited a town hall on health care reform that was unlike any other: part poetry slam, part politics. We bring you some of the voices from a health care debate of a different kind.

Hear Dina Smith sing her own adaptation of the classic "If I Were a Rich Man."

Hear 19-year-old James Jaydon Woodard read his untitled poem, incorporating themes of fast food and ill health, both mental and physical.

Hear 19-year-old Yafreici Peralta read her poem "Wealth Care."
