Step 1: Be a minority, woman, or both. Anything but a white male.
Step 2: Be a crazy leftist.
Step 3: Hate white men.
Step 4: Only do slam poetry about hating white men and minority "problems."
There ya have it! Unfortunately, slam poetry is only nailing the coffin on poetry even more. It's not even good poetry. It's stupid, and I hate it so much.
Please don't be a slam "poet." You're killing a beautiful art.
