This Saturday at 2 p.m., the "Red Room" at That's Entertainment will be covered with a verbal barrage of squirting blood, steaming entrails and spewing guts as several (and, possibly, severed) post-apocalyptic poets will partake in a visceral vivisection of verse.
WITH severed limbs and broken head, With spewing guts and blood so red, The image of the little child, So innocent yet so defiled, Is testament of freedom gained - Or so they say, these men of war, Their hidden goal of oil attained With no regard to whom they saw As standing in their bloody way - They'll live to fight another day.
