From Chicago teacher Molly Meacham: “How A Political Poem Was Bullied Out of Me”

This inspirational and deeply moving performance requires nothing from me beyond the little bit of background I found online. Molly Meacham is a CTU English teacher at Lane Tech. She’s also a slam poet. The students on this website gave her very high marks; they say her class is hard, but they love her. I can certainly see why.

Here is the text of the poem; according to the People’s Library of Occupy Chicago, Molly also performed it an Occupy Rogers Park strike solidarity event.
