    Dear Site Manager,

    I refuse to comment on the poem you have posted, because it is not Charles Bukawski's poem...
    this however is...

    shot in the eye
    shot in the brain
    shot in the ass
    shot like a flower in the dance

    amazing how death wins hands down
    amazing how much credence is given to idiot forms of life

    amazing how laughter has been drowned out
    amazing how viciousness is such a constant

    I must soon declare my own war on their war
    I must hold to my last piece of ground
    I must protect the small space I have made that has allowed me life

    my life not their death
    my death not their death...

    You lazy effort of leaving out parts of classic work is really upsetting, it is just rude and offensive.

    Hank is the most sane person, the most real person, the one who makes sense of this joke we call exsistence. He doesn't try, he just is....'Don't try' (Report) Reply

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
