Obama's poetry

Poet Ian McMillan looks at two recently unearthed poetic gems the candidate wrote when he was 19.

Here's one of the poems:

Under water grottos, caverns

Filled with apes

That eat figs.

Stepping on the figs

That the apes

Eat, they crunch.

The apes howl, bare

Their fangs, dance,

Tumble in the

Rushing water,

Musty, wet pelts

Glistening in the blue.
