3 Cheap Poems
for all those now on line,
especially with names exactly
There are hundreds...
But I'm the true one,
who informs then that
all is fake...
As for Pitter! Patter!
or real living matter,
I refuse on grounds
that there is no true
Just this malignant trapped
being, screwing words onto
vast sockets of thought,
And that the bulb
glares within -
Yes - lights out now,
- forget it,
That wasn't cheap!
this isn't cheap...
they aren't cheap,
Oh! No! not coins,
not that shiny evil stuff,
try a cheaper one,
A Saviour of rot
that's what we've got,
Your awful highness,
I may salute you -
some day, though.
(from beyond the grave...)
I took the 'C' out of cheap,
and was left with a pile
of stones - a mile high!
When poetry is nowhere
and I'm someone else,
beyond some black curtain,
slobbering over a hot - peach,
I mean 'really! '
