Poetry and Politics

I just recognized that most of my HAIs refer to websites, picture discoveries, online articles and such… fine, just call me the Daddy D of LSD: the master of secondary information. i beg your pardon. now:

| :::Todays Webtip: Poetry & Politics

the following poems are by a contemporary american author, known to only few connaisseurs de la littérature… his name is stated at the end of the article. though don’t judge this man by his name but instead read on and try to understand the value of his musings and inner reflections… as they appear to unreveal truths that one’s conscience will not…

1.) The Unknown
As we know,
There are known knowns.
There are things we know we know.
We also know
There are known unknowns.
That is to say
We know there are some things
We do not know.
But there are also unknown unknowns,
The ones we don’t know
We don’t know.

2.) Happening
You’re going to be told lots of things.
You get told things every day that don’t happen.

It doesn’t seem to bother people, they don’t-
It’s printed in the press.
The world thinks all these things happen.
They never happened.

Everyone’s so eager to get the story
Before in fact the story’s there
That the world is constantly being fed
Things that haven’t happened.

All I can tell you is,
It hasn’t happened.
It’s going to happen.

3.) A Confession
Once in a while,
I’m standing here, doing something.
And I think,
“What in the world am I doing here?”
It’s a big surprise.
