Nobodys Poet


I am somebodies poet
Who are you?
My poems are about nobody
Then again about somebody
Choose your poison
Select your place
A wanted poster
In a familiar place
Perhaps the post office
Civil servants will agree
Who wants who
We shall see
Writings on a bathroom stall
Thrill all the worlds great drunks
A can of paint in a tunnel dark
Words of non wisdom
Written on a lark
A banner behind a flying cessna
Eat at Joes
Ruins the beaches sunlit skies
I am nobodies poet
How about you?
Like the Marines
We are the proud and the few.

The hour yet bears for thee and me

If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
