James Franco wrote a poem for Obama’s Inauguration?

James Franco

For those of you who forgot how annoying art students were, here’s actor James Franco to remind you with his “poem” about President Barack Obama‘s second inauguration, via Yahoo! …

I met Obama once, in D.C., the Correspondents’ Dinner.
I was the guest of Vanity Fair, guided through D.C. by the wife
Of Christopher Hitchens, when he was alive. We went to Hitch’s place,
He had books from floor to ceiling, and said he had read

To Borges, when he was blind, Old Icelandic Eddas—
Then we waited in a private room with the likes of Tom Cruise,
And Katie Holmes, and Claire Danes. When Obama entered
The crowd converged. Finally, I got to shake his hand,

He knew me from Spider-Man. I asked him for advice,
I was scheduled to give the commencement speech at UCLA
And there were some undergraduate knockers against me;
He had been denied the usual honorary degree by Arizona State

Because he hadn’t accomplished enough, so I wondered
How he dealt with detractors. He smiled his smile and said,
“Humor.” Well he’s damn right, and I wonder how much
That stand-up comedian is laughing in the face

Of this big country. Because he is one man and we are many,
And a great servant of the people—he’s a president, not a king—
And doesn’t need to face what King Charles once faced. READ MORE

Wait, does… Does James Franco know that you can’t just randomly break up a bunch paragraphs and call it poetry, right? This is just a blog post, except Franco decided to hit the return key at random intervals. So congrats to James Franco I guess; you somehow managed to make your writing even more self-serving and pretentious than usual.
