I read a story should be about the
“How and Why?”
The hard part is writing
“The Stretch In Between”
I just read a story about the
“Differences In Being female”
It reminded me of something I abhor
“Societal Rules”
Along with it’s ever present
So I wonder in America today
“Is Freedom Only For Rebels?”
I can’t help but ask myself
“Is Freedom Being A Rebel?”
Because it seems to be a certified success today
“the only option is conformity”
So I wonder,
“Did All The Great Poets Have Degrees?”
If they didn’t it seems today that
“Greatness Is Overrated”
Because TODAY
“Degrees Are Your Only Path To Mild Obscurity”
The modern truth is
“The genius In Poverty Deserves No Degree”
It seems are fast food nation has once again forgotten that
“The Great Painters Of History All Died poor”
At least
“Now They Can Be Ghostly Trillion-ares”
But the colleges say
“Come And Be Creative”
They grin and say
“We Welcome The Hard Working”
But all the scholarships are won by
“Smiling Faced Degree Accredited poets”
I guess the new hip counter-culture movement is
“Not ‘On The Road’ But ‘Off-The Road”
Lets all cheerfully welcome what the dying American Art Movement needs TODAY
“Today’s M.A. Earned American Pioneers in Outlaw Thought”
Their creative genius
“Payed For In Gross Tuition Fees”
Still wet from the harsh jungle of upper middle class America where
“Daddy’s Credit Card Will Provide Your Creativity”
All their
“Passion For Art Is Proved And Paid”
The websites will host their
“Smiling Thumbnails with proof of paid for artistry”
Today we can safely adopt the motto
“Never-mind Art Speaking For Itself”
Joyfully walk down the cattle shoot
“Scholarships are for the conformists”
And remember
“freethinkers never changed the world”
