Recently, the libraries of North Wasco County School District hosted the eighth annual poetry slam. As part of that event high school math teacher Linear Ben Lin competed against middle school history teacher Sequential Seth Hedberg in a no-holds barred Rap-Off.
Sadly for both educators, the panel of three judges called it a tie, destroying bragging rights for both men.
District 21 librarian Jim Tindall has announced that he has negotiated an agreement between Linear Lin and Sequential Seth for a rematch.
“While it was very difficult to get to consensus on all issues, both rappers worked to find common ground,” Tindall said.
This event will take place Wednesday, May 14, in The Dalles Middle School Commons. Doors open at 7:45 in the evening to the live music of Jim Bob, the band with a name. At about 8, an open mike will be offered to poets and rappers who have brought original work. The Rap Off will follow immediately.
A winner will be selected by audience voting and results will be determined at that time. Recording, photographic and electronic devices are welcomed.
Linear Lin has exclaimed out his window toward Amaton Field, “It’s going to be EPIC!”
When this was passed on to Sequential Seth, he scoffed, “Come and watch your favorite math teacher squirm on the ground like a pathetic creature!”
The community is invited to join the circus atmosphere.
