Allen Ginberg-esque

Hello all who are out there (i literally feel like a space-martian whenever i write in this blog, because i have no idea who my audience is and whether i should be really chummy and be like hey there lovely ones, or stick with a more severe greetings, or maybe wazzaaaaaaaaaa)

I’m really tempted to start every post with a wazzaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa…

Just to get some reactions. But shall not. i have my dignity to safeguard.

So i have here for you some poetry that i’ve written many weeks ago, while we were busy studying Howl (By Allen Ginsberg everyone. Go read/listen to the live performance of it). And i thought i should share it with this audience of mine (please be not oysters and sea-cucumbers but living breathing humn beings who like poetry please :). So pleasenjoy!!!!!!! And tell me if you think otherwise. Poetry is subjective truth. And subjective beauty. And therefore i adore it.

Allen Ginsberg-esque, Howl style:

[20th century issues]

I live within the walls of freedom, so intangible are they

that I can touch, smell and fondle them in this world of pardoxical mumbo-jumbo

 

Oh, how much I have

triste et joyeux living without it-

the previous century’s big fear

oh of racial ethnic gender discrimination

oh of living a life sans freedom

 

Is there somebody

Oh with the freedom yielding power of Obama

come and help me spell this word and tear it piece by piece

one stinking immeasurably long strand at a time

 

Oh, only to find what lies inside of it

Oh is freedom twisted by the free and prosperous world we love and cherish in this century-

             Nothing greater than the opposite of modeerf

 

Oh, what a pathetic waste of freedom

Like humanity’s long-lost love forgotten.
