I’m a poet?
Over the last four years at the SHRM National Conference it’s become a tradition for a group of HR professionals from across the country to gather and hold a fundraising event for Share Our Stength and their No Kid Hungry campaign. In previous years, we’ve played street hockey, kickball and gone bowling. This year’s event was a poetry slam. Several of us stood up and read poems to about 50 other HR professionals and three judges.
I wrote my poem during the event, and read it with humorous intent. It was a good enough presentation to get me into the competition for the top spot. You may not be able to tell that from the posting which follows, but maybe you’ll take pity on me and make a small donation to #NKH.
I’ll post a link to the video when it becomes available. Meanwhile, here’s my poem – composed of actual texts off my phone and some personal side notes.
