And now for some poetry…
I’ve been writing poetry for years, and I figured it was finally time for me to collect these verses that I have been scribbling for the past forty years or so and put them in a single volume. Poetic Prancings is the name of the book and it is due out soon. Stay tuned for the release announcement, but meanwhile here is a taste of what’s inside. I may post a few more verses in coming weeks.
COMES THE REVOLUTION (2012)
It is unfortunately true
That by Two Thousand Twenty-two
Those “one-percenter” corporate cats
And money-grubbing plutocrats
Who make a fateful mockery
Of our once-great democracy
Shall have had a decade’s warning
That the Revolution’s forming.
All of us should be dissenters—
Black and white and gray and gay.
Dare all “99-percenters”
Grab a Glock, or an A-K?
There can be no weak relenters—
Everyone must join the fray!
(Yet since we’re also normal men,
We’ll rack our rifles now and then
To smoke a joint and have a drink—
And then mayhap and maybe
We’ll pause and point and smile and wink
At some attractive lady!)
