Insane Clown Posse Essay Contest 2

We received a review copy of the latest ICP repackaging, Bang Pow Boom: Nuclear Edition, featuring the original version of BPB, plus a seven-track bonus disc containing stuff that was clearly too awesome and non-irradiated for the single-disc, non-nuclear version, and a "Video DVD" containing the stirring documentary "A Family Underground," and the Bicycle Thief of clown-make-up wearing-fake-MC music videos, "Miracles" (see above). For real, this is one of the best things I've seen on the internet in a long time. That shit'll shock your eyelids. And all of this can be yours, you lucky-ass juggalo.

All you've got to do is write an essay comparing this verse from the ICP song:
I see miracles all around me
Stop and look around, it's all astounding
Water, fire, air and dirt
Fucking magnets, how do they work?
And I don't wanna talk to a scientist
Y'all motherfuckers lying, and getting me pissed

To this poem by Walt Whitman:

When I heard the learn'd astronomer;
When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me;
When I was shown the charts and the diagrams, to add, divide, and
measure them;
When I, sitting, heard the astronomer, where he lectured with much
applause in the lecture-room,
How soon, unaccountable, I became tired and sick;
Till rising and gliding out, I wander'd off by myself,
In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time,
Look'd up in perfect silence at the stars.

Easy, right? Like discussing the symbolism of fish in a barrel. (Also a miracle! How'd those slippery fuckers get in there, yo?)

In the case of a tie, the bonus round will require you to explain how miracles can happen in the universe when this video clearly disproves the existence of a benevolent god.*
