This is a pretty dodgy video – the mic kept cutting out and the second poem’s crap, but it’s the only video recording (I can’t actually remember a video being taken but there you go) I have of my Open Letter To the President. It was written long before Obama was the next black. What can I say, finger on the pulse, trend-setter and all that. He hasn’t replied yet, but I imagine he will soon. Any day now … Mr President?
