They Roll In Outrage
One more Bidart recording for the day, this one called To The Republic.
I don't want to add to much to his words below, as I think they ought to speak for themselves. Bidart joins the ranks of war poets from the ages, and I particularly like his earlier statement on the poem:
"If it's any good, it will not just be an anti-Bush poem, but be about the past coming and saying that you've betrayed the legacy we left here."
