The keypad is mightier than the sword
I wrote this poem recently,
We do what we can,
with what we've got.
Our life is only that.
at the end of the day.
We see some respect
from a few,
We smile for a moment.
And then we're gone.
while thinking of ulookarmless,
aka CJ Campbell,
and while thinking of myself.
It's my variation on the old line from the seventies:
Life's a bitch,I challenge each of you,
and then you die.
you regular IK poets,
write your life poem.
Out write me.
Write a life poem
so much better than mine,
that I'll be embarrassed
that mine is here.
I don't think you can do that;
but I think if you try,
you'll give us your angle on life,
your way of describing
what we all deal with.
show us what you got!
if you're worried
that I'm not focusing the group
on political poetry,
art is always political,
unless it is explicitly Republican in nature,
it's on our side.
A focus on life,
is a focus on working class life,
and we are the party
of the working class.
