My Newspaper Blackout Poem

The remains of the article of “Weld’ that I used for my Newspaper Blackout Poem

Today my EH204 Class went to the Urban Standard in Downtown Birmingham. While we were there, our Professor had us do a Newspaper Blackout Poem. This was a challenging, but fun activity that I would absolutely do again. The poem is as follows:

What next?
What will happen to the UAB Football Players?
With the decision, Ray Watts made himself the most unpopular person in Birmingham.
What’s next for Birmingham?
What happens to all of the energy that has been expended over the past few Weeks to reverse a decision that was years in the making.
That energy was impressive.
That energy kept with Birmingham’s history as a place where ordinary citizens
Are willing to demonstrate their desire to make a difference.
To shape a city which they live and help define its destiny.
That energy was real.
What’s next?
What happens now?
