For they’re just some of the perks
Of Orange County Library System’s movie collection.
Howl (Available on Kanopy, Hoopla & DVD)
Allen Ginsberg was an angel-headed hipster
Not to mention, a 1950s poetic trickster
But no one is laughing
Thanks to James Franco’s acting
In this biographical picture.
Dead Poets Society (Available on DVD and DVD Through Free Home Delivery)
O Captain, my Captain
Robin Williams does some actin’
In this wonderful play
About seizing the day
And living your life with passion
Deaf Jam (Available on Kanopy)
New York teen Aneta Brodski
Enjoys creating slam poetry
But it’s hard to be clear
When you aren’t able to hear
Good thing she has her best friend, Tahani
Neruda (Available on Kanopy)
Pablo Neruda won the Nobel Prize
But shortly thereafter was hospitalized
His own government had him supposedly poisoned
For being the source of Augusto Pinochet’s annoyance
Now his legacy as a poet is canonized
