Yahoo! News commissioned actor/known eccentric James Franco to write a poem for President Obama's inauguration because, I don't know, why not? Why not have James Franco write a poem for every occasion? Why not have a James Franco poem for every American? Why not? I mean, why not?
Franco's poem is one part English 350 - Introduction to Modernism, one part resume, one part narrative and all parts crazy. Good. We wouldn't want a Franco poem to be any other way. To receive your own James Franco poem, climb up to the roof on a clear winter's night and whisper your request to the stars.
