NOTE: Each week, we are featuring a school's performance from the 14th Annual Poetry Slam!. During the two-night culminating event of the fall season, each of the 27 schools DC SCORES serves had the opportunity to perform original poems and songs in front of their peers, families and community members.
On the second night of the Slam!, the C.W. Harris Elementary School poets provided some comic relief for the capacity audience with a give-and-take debate on the merits of ... cake! Check out this poem along with C.W. Harris' other works from their night of presentation on stage.
To view any performance from the Poetry Slam!, visit the DC SCORES YouTube page.
