My Neighbor the Terrorist On the Road to Damascus Poet Who Does Not Mince His Words


VERNON WARING
My Neighbor the Terrorist
i'm sure she's a terrorist she drives a stick shift and wears sensible shoes and everything she does arouses my suspicion she's up there now in her cluttered apartment yapping about her congressman and the debt ceiling i hear her every day yelling at her tv set giving attitude to all those women on 'the view' and someone told me she sneaks off to the mall in plaid sneakers and has four computers and hides her cats in shoe boxes whenever the property manager comes around and she always has a smile for the property manager i'm on to her and i have a plan that involves deadbolt locks surveillance video and a bugging device she's up there now going on about the president give me a beak at least he isn't driving a stick shift

My Neighbor the Terrorist On the Road to Damascus Poet Who Does Not Mince His Words


HANS BEIHL
On the Road to Damascus
Silently breeding Proudly crawling In dank and foul quarters Safely hidden From the light - Not within ourselves Our motives devout - Lurking somewhere else On the alien side; In the name of Love Honor Faith We selflessly submit We ferret out The ungodly Slimy Beast; We congratulate We glorify ourselves - The black milk stopped, The barbed wire rotted - We do only what is best In the eye of the sacred Word - And yet What Have We Won? A worm inhabits Even the purest heart, Reason still sycophant To the claw, Cries of pain From new directions, While solemn justice Feverishly Cuts its summit path; Will the cleansing Eclipse of the mushroom Take our grievance to the world Beyond? Perhaps if we dive Down Deep (Dare we try? We might not breath) To fathom The heretic cause: In the cold eyes of our foe Behind his savage mask Is a vision We must not meet - The other part of ourselves.

My Neighbor the Terrorist On the Road to Damascus Poet Who Does Not Mince His Words


FRANKO BUSIC^
Poet Who Does Not Mince His Words 
I thought I would make the painting in an old-fashioned style, but the painting has painted me, in a modern style, with horns of the creative power and the strength that tears to pieces the aureoles of vanity of the academic snobs. I thought I would make a poem in a modern style but the poem has made me in an old fashioned style with DA DA DA and plenty of commas in front of and after DA; glory to the old fashioned poem. I thought I would sit and write a poem but the poem has written me, the poet, who does not mince his words. In nomine Domini Inferi, I said, without mincing my words, yielding the poem poet who does not mince his words.
