A little late to the party there, aren't you, Professor?
Coming soon from Dr. Mudede: "I Do Believe A Few Of These Young Musical Troupes Are Employing Pilfered African Rhythms"
U2 sucks and doesn´t touch Irish poetry - they´re a bus it (we?) never saw go by. Irish poetry in English over there seems to be giving way to Irish poetry in Irish. Meanwhile, forget U2 - nothing can escape the transformative influence of hiphop. Shit, now I´m sounding like Charles.
Take a deep breath, Charles. Yeah, we know Bono is a thieving opportunist. No one cares about that, though. The volumes of Auden and Yates are still safe on our shelves.
Charles, you do realize that Seamus Heaney is Irish and still writing? Not to mention Nuala Ni Dhomnaill, Gabriel Rosenstock, and Liam O Muirthile. No matter where you stand on Bono's writing ability, you can hardly say that Irish poetry isn't in excellent form.
I'm sorry, Heraclitus, I don't really get the point. Could you explain the riddle?

I love that your name is Megan.
