Current Events

For the next half of National Poetry Month 2017, 
Malvina will Sing It, and I'll write a poem in response.

Sometimes in Malvina's songs, she pulled her topic straight from the headlines of the newspaper. Her song today is about a little mouse who chewed some wires, causing big problems for humans.

Language alert if you are listening with children. 
Be ready to hit mute at 1:06-1:09 and again at 2:40-2:43. 

My poem topic today came from this article: Cassini Spacecraft Starts Weaving Between Saturn and Its Rings. It's a blackout poem.

In Order to Survive
