Mike Polensek's Poetry Goes International

Future Poet Laureate Mike Polensek
Councilman Mike Polensek’s letter to a “crack dealing piece of trash” has become an international sensation. He made it on FOXNews.com, The Smoking Gun , and even the Greater Boston Nepali Community site. And yesterday, he was on the BBC radio show “World Have Your Say,” which gave listeners from Detroit to Zambia a chance to weigh in on the councilman’s choice of adjectives. You can listen to the show, and read some of the funnier online comments, here. One of my favorites comes from someone in our fair Verona by the Lake:
To the Brainiac known as Michael D. Polensek, What on earth were you thinking Polensek? I understand the frustration of having drug dealers in my neighborhood, but you tarnished your credibility as a professional politician while gloating like a large, verbally incontinent child! With any luck, you'll apologize and hopefully resign before the weekend to keep everything from hitting the fan. Next time use your brain ... Better yet take a creative writing class and don't use city stationary for your personal vendetta's. Ken in Cleveland, "The City That Never Thinks"
