Poetry Out Loud NJ 2011 State Finals: Winner Clarissa Lotson Performs "Song of the Powers"



hello my name is Clarissa Lawton and I will be performing song of the powers by David Mason mine said the stone mine is the hour I crush the scissors such is my power stronger than wishes my power alone mine said the paper mine are the words that smother the stone with imagined Birds reams of them flown from the mind of the shaper mine said the scissors mine all the knives dashing through papers ethereal lives nothing so proper as tattering wishes as stone crushes scissors and paper snuffs stone and scissors cut paper I'll end alone so heap up your paper and scissor your wishes and uproot the stone from the top of the hill they all end alone as you will you will thank you
