25 Protest Poetry Collections To Read Right Now

From Bustle’s list of 25 protest poetry collections to read right now:

Selected by E. CE MILLER: VEI among one of the 25 protest poetry collections to read right now.

“In the age of Trump, rage-Tweets, alternative facts, and Facebook feeds filled with deliberately-false news, it’s possible that all poetry is the poetry of protest. The mere act of mining your thoughts for truth and then putting that truth to paper is, in itself, an act of rebellion against the new status quo, where facts are fake and lies are protected beneath the guise of “opinion,” “free speech,” and “well, somebody told me…”. How many times throughout history have the poets been the ones to call tyranny tyranny first? And how many times have we neglected to listen?”
