Contract with America – live reading
Recorded during the Literature Lives open mic event at the North Bergen Free Public Library in NJ on June 27th 2012. These literary readings are held once a month on the last Wednesday of every month.
This poem was written in 1994 during the Clinton years, when Newt Gingrich was Speaker of the House. I still read the poem because it is still relevant even today. As long as Gingrich continues to be active in political life, and continues to speak publicly, this poem will remain current.
