Amanda Gorman: “The Hill We Climb” to be Biden’s Inaugural Poem

Poet Amanda Gorman has been chosen to read at the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden

She is calling her inaugural poem “The Hill We Climb” while otherwise declining to preview any lines. Gorman says she was not given specific instructions on what to write, but was encouraged to emphasize unity and hope over “denigrating anyone” or declaring “ding, dong, the witch is dead” over the departure of President Donald Trump.

Sad to hear “ding, dong” has been discouraged, as I kind of like the sound of it.
