A New Footnote To Howl


Howl for the dollar suckers, the shake amarni makers
Howl for the rolex souls with their calls to Frankfurt
Howl for the poets who quote in Italian who don`t know how to laugh
Howl for the ice children waiting for buses
Howl for the mobiles with cheap words full of soap
Howl for sons who drive to funerals in cabrios
Howl for the droners who giggle when killing
Howl for moons falling into beer-sodden parks
Howl for kid angels sorting junk in the morning
Howl for gods who wear pictures on their arms
Howl for bombers chasing whores in the sky
Howl for the motherless kissing tins in supermarkets
Howl for the acid faced brides of a lost country

Howl for the pissers, the quick fixers and the holy drinkers
praying on pavements.

Holy occupy holy resistance holy lennon holy allen holy
ernesto and all the prophets who know that
everybody is truth, let them be blessed for
the hard days to come. moving.

    howl as coyotes
    howl as wolves
    howl at ourselves?
    or at our otherselves?
    howl without a sound?
    (I think it's time to stop and look around
    there's a man with a gun over there
    telling me I got to wear...) ...buffalo springfield (Report) Reply
