We’ll have a full wrap-up here tomorrow on all the serious fun that was our 2015 Poetry at Work Day celebration. But today we want to put the spotlight on one warm and woolly fellow who faithfully tweeted poems from work all day long. Mark the Mammoth is the mascot of the Chemung County Historical Society in Elmira, NY. It somehow does not surprise us that Elmira was a town Mark Twain spent more than little time in.
Enjoy the work of up and coming poet Mark the Mammoth. (And cross your fingers he doesn’t get into too much trouble with his boss for writing poems instead of doing his usual mammoth duties for the day.)
