That's right. Here is one of two poems written by Barack O'bama back in the day. I heard about them from Gus who heard about them from Harpers who heard about them from NY Times who got them from his 1981 college student semi-annual literary journal. You can check out the other at the NY Times link.


Under water grottos, caverns
Filled with apes
That eat figs.
Stepping on the figs
That the apes
Eat, they crunch.
The apes howl, bare
Their fangs, dance,
Tumble in the
Rushing water,
Musty, wet pelts
Glistening in the blue.
