Oprah poetry suit

By "Oprah poetry suit" I don't mean "apparel Oprah dons when reading verse" (though the idea of her and Maya Angelou donning matching outfits and trading lines from "Phenomenal Woman" would make a great YouTube video), I mean that Oprah is being sued by a crazy dude who claims she stole his poetry.

Read all about it on Videogum, though the story is best encapsulated by a comment made by Videogum user Skillet: "Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and I, I took the one with the 1.2 trillion dollars. Because poetry is for ballers. Also, shot callers."

And speaking of Maya "All Occasions" Angelou, she wrote a poem for Michael Jackson that Queen Latifah recited at his public memorial.
