Maybe it's a silly question, but have you been to a poetry slam? It struck me that I don't really know how prevalent those events are over there these days, even though it started in the US once upon a time.

What I wonder is, how did anyone ever come up with the word and how did it catch on? Then again, we call it raps, so maybe there's some oldy worldy root for it. Anyway, it's really not that much of an issue. But yea, goldenrod could make for a more of a direct connection with verse six, image wise.
