Poet’s Protest 2011

Poet’s Protest


Are we fools?

How dare they advertise

An anti-wrinkle cream

Using a dream girl

Not a day past thirty!

‘Dirty tricks’ were not confined

To Richard Nixon.

We, the sharper generation,

Gorgeous as we are as is,

Advised by punks of twenty-six

(the guys who run the agencies)

To do away with times of life

They’ve never had, know nothing of,

With promises they can’t fulfill,

For goals illusionary and degrading,


Rejecting disappointment I,

The blunt and pungent,

Jaunty regent,

Ancient in those agent’s eyes

Confront those dolts,

Affronted by their insults.

Our Times, Our Culture; Circling Round Wrinkles;
