#128: John Oliver Slams My State

th-1

Today’s optional prompt from the Napowrimo curator is to write a poem entirely from the text of a newspaper article, manipulated any way one sees fit. Here’s this thing, courtesy of the Oregonian’s coverage of the debut episode of John Oliver’s “Last Week Tonight” show. I guess any publicity is good publicity:

John Oliver Slams My State

National pundits
weighing in
not just from the right-wing.

Left-leaning John Oliver
unleashes a fusillade of
hilarious haymakers.

Lisa Loeb leads an
amazing parody of the cutesy
$10-million-plus Cover Oregon ad campaign.

Yes John, we do live
in a cartoon.
Proud of it.
