There once was a time when poets ruled the world .... …
SOME RHYTHMIC HOPE
It is a time of media. Of remixing to make a point. Of mashups and memes.
For years a network of Ninja Poets have gathered to help build a different kind of Web, to make the world a more sticky place.
In a galaxy where everything is clickable, this band of Ninja Poets has decided to return to Words. To find power in verse.
When everything is a remix, how do Ninja Poets survive?
They emerse themselves in verse
Avoid taking a turn for the worse
Inside the lines every time
They write a remix
So when the viral goes spiral
They turn the world on its ear:
Change is a' coming
You can feel it in the air.
Write a poem. Join the Ninja Poets in the folds of CLMOOC
The poems are strong in all of us. Will you be the One? Whose Epic will you write?
The funky soundtrack is the result of a collaborative online jam session from Rhizomatic Learning. Rock on with your bad selves!
