Obama's early poems

I was checking Ebay this morning for a particular poetry book and happened upon an auction for a 1981 Occidental College publication that contains two of then-19-year-old Barack Obama's poems.

Here are the two poems, "Pop" and "Underground", which renowned literary scholar Harold Bloom, "probably the most celebrated literary critic in the U.S." analyzed back in 2007.

Bidding starts at $500.
