Today we are going to read a satisfyingly dystopian poem by Heather McHugh.
The poem really embodies much of what we've been discussing while we read, in particular the abuse of technology, and the latest issue we will raise: the absence of individual freedom. We are going to keep these connections in mind while we each work on our own versions of this poem, which we will narrate from the perspective of someone from The Hunger Games.

One more day until winter break, everyone! 
Let's finish strong!
-Mr. Thomas
