To poets far & fat

LEAN ON LEAN MEAT—To poets far & fat: Inject meat into your couplets for Pete's sake! To focus on wintry climes & autumn leaves smacks of chronic testosterone deficiency as half of Mankind succumbs to starvation & dysentery; as 40% of Mesopotamia is uninhabitable thanks to 'depleted' uranium; as Fukushima threatens a China Syndrome; as Kenyan Obama commandeers the middle class. Lenny Bruce did a bit on how 'sophisticated' northerners (specifically New York City types) refused to smile for pictures, as opposed to hayseed Southerners who were taught to smile before the camera. How does one wax poetically on a forgotten dream? Christus Jesus was born during the harvest. December 25 was a pagan holiday BEFORE the birth of the Nazarene. The crapped-out “poet”/pederast Allen Ginsberg was a senior member of, and cheerleader for, N.A.M.B.L.A. {North American Man/Boy Love Association}. Surely we can find someone, who DOESN'T pork boys, to slobber over? If you cut off a foot would you be more careful where you stepped?

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
