Above, is the podcast recording of a poem, Viking Warrior, by Taylor Mali. I would say that this is one of the best poems that I have ever read. The text of the poem had brought many tears to my eyes. What the poem speaks, is that a young seventh is diagnosed with the deadliest of all diseases, cancer. Alnog with the boy diagnosed with cancer, the poem is also about how is classmates react with the diagnosis and how they relate him to a viking warrior. Below is a link to the text of the poem. Enjoy!
