This week, it seems like everybody's sounding off on Gov. Snyder, his administration, and its role in the poisoning of Flint children. We've seen essays, diatribes, memes, and more, but ... we have seen precious little poetry.

Finally, a poem about this whole situation has emerged. It appeared today on the lefty news site CounterPunch, authored by one Jonathan Andersen. What's more, it's a form of poem usually eschewed by today's poetry crowd: It's a curse.



So, if any of you have longed for a way to wish there were a hell, and to hope the governor rots there — or, heck, if you just plain like poetry — click the link here and see it for yourself.
