poets these days
always using words that no one really knows
words that no one really even needs to know
theyre constantly alluding to god knows what
in an attempt to thumb their pseudo-elitis noses at the
bukowski's standing beside the red wheelbarrow drinking beer
an intellectual says a simple thing in a hard way
an artist says a hard thing in a simple way
but what do i know, im drunk
