Best Poem of doug bentley

What Do I Do?

process is primary
asserted whitehead: *

evolution a certainty
say smart quacks.


but i'm in a bit
of an existential bind

right now for you see
my fate is to die

and the only question is -
what do i do?



* Alfred North Whitehead [1861 - 1947]

A Canadian's Poem (2)

O! Canada!
30 some million
supremely

arrogant souls
who know best
what is best
for the rest of us

[Hata Bildir]
