“Russell Simmons Presents Def Poetry” certainly isn’t new, but that doesn’t mean it’s not awesome.

The show premiered in 2002 on HBO and features a wide range of poets, actors, rappers, singers and comedians. Simmons’ series also had a 6-month run on Broadway, and won a 2003 Tony Award for Best Special Theatrical Event.

Buntology was recently alerted to some of these great spoken-word poems, and below are two of our favorites.
