    Exclamation Itís Time for a Mass Poetry Movement!

    Itís Time for a Mass Poetry Movement!
    A Call-to-Action by Wolf Larsen

    Life is too short and boring! So why donít we all spray paint graffiti poetry all over the buildings! Why is it illegal to spray paint graffiti poetry all over the buildings? If you were to compare texting and driving, to spray painting graffiti poetry all over the buildings, Iím sure that any sane person would come to the conclusion that spray painting graffiti poetry all over the buildings is by far the lesser evil, and therefore spray painting graffiti poetry all over the buildings should be legal!

    And thatís why all Poets should declare themselves to be President of their countries (like Juan Guido of Venezuela) and make it legal to spray paint graffiti poetry all over the buildings and the dogs and the cats! And letís spray paint graffiti poetry on the sidewalks and streets and on both the insides & the outsides of the trains and buses and cars and everything else as well! That way, all the cities of the world will be giant collages of poetry!

    In addition, Poets are special people! So Poets should be able to run around naked screaming out poetry at the top of their lungs! Why not?!
    If you were to compare all the horrors of bloody war to Poets running around naked and screaming out poetry at the top of their lungs, than obviously Poets running around naked and screaming out poetry is the lesser evil.

    Nudity is poetry, and poetry is nudity! That is why Poets should defend the right of people to run around naked! After all, the animals donít wear clothes, so why should we?

    Which brings me to my next point! Poetry should not be civilized! Poetry should be animal-like & barbaric! Poetry should be filled with snarls and barking and loud animal noises! Poets should not be gentlemen & ladies! Poets should be barbarians who beat on their chests while they scream obscene poetry at the audience!

    And why shouldnít we have poetry demonstrations on the streets? We could parade naked down the streets singing out poems while weíre banging on pots and pans, and using everything else on hand as musical instruments, as we sing and chant poetry in endless poetry demonstrations every day of the year! Each poetry demonstration could be different - with a different theme! We could use Brazilian Carnaval and the gay pride parades of New York City & Chicago & San Francisco as the inspiration for our poetry demonstrations!

    In addition, are you sick and tired of politicians & dictators & kings & queens talking blah blah blah? They say one thing and then they do another! Theyíre all a bunch of liars! Instead of politicians & dictators & kings & queens addressing the nation, why shouldnít Poets address the nation instead?!

    And whatís wrong with nudity on television?! Absolutely nothing! So Poets should get on television naked, declare themselves to be President of whatever country, and then yell & sing & whisper & chant poetry at the television cameras! I mean, why not?!

    And whatís the point of grammar?! **** grammar! Itís poetry! You might as well do the same thing to language that the United States of America did to Vietnam & Hiroshima & Nagasaki & all that! Letís turn language into a sculpture! Letís turn language into a war! Letís turn language into a giant orgy of poetry!

    Which brings me to my next point. Everybody knows that sex helps creativity! So we should have poetry orgies in the streets and in the parks and in the offices and in the space stations in outer space and everywhere! And in these poetry orgies the naked people will scream out poetry and sing out poetry and chant poetry while theyíre all having sex with each other in public. Because sex is poetry and poetry is sex!

    And why shouldnít poetry be painted in bright colors?! Why should poetry appear in dull black-and-white letters on a page or a computer screen?! Why shouldnít we paint poetry all over our naked bodies?! We could run down the street with poetry painted all over our naked bodies in bright colors as we scream poetry at all the passerby!

    Also, itís too boring sitting there on public transportation and doing nothing! Why shouldnít everybody on a bus or train just get up and start screaming & singing & chanting poetry at each other?!

    And why should corporate executives who seem to ruin everything (Boeing, Enron, derivatives traders, etc) be paid millions of dollars to ruin everything?! Instead, letís pay Poets millions & millions of dollars!! Why? Because theyíre Poets - thatís why!!
    Poets should be living in the penthouses! Poets should be living in the mansions!

    Furthermore, Poets are the sexiest people on the planet! Never mind those anorexic Hollywood stars that vomit in a toilet after they eat, and say the most stupid things in those red carpet affairs! Instead, we should have bizarre poetry galas where everyone dresses in the most bizarre outfits possible and everyone screams and sings out the most bizarre poetry ever heard and the people cheer on their favorite Poets as the television cameras take it all in!

    And why do they interview stupid athletes on television?! They should interview Poets on television! And when they interview Poets they should ask questions that donít make any sense! And the Poets should respond with answers that donít make any sense! Just respond with poetry!

    In fact, why even bother having a normal conversation at all?! Why shouldnít all conversations be nonsensical poetry?! Whatís the point in having a stupid meaningless conversation about the weather or whatever?!

    And why shouldnít the weather report by the weatherman on television be given in poetry?! And the main point of the weather report should not be what the actual weather is, but whoever gives the most poetic weather report is the best weatherman!

    And pornography is too dull! Why shouldnít porn actors scream out and whisper and sing and moan poetry while theyíre having sex with each other?!

    And another thing: too many poetry readings are boring! We should liven up poetry readings with human sacrifices! Thatís right! Human sacrifices at poetry readings! And why not have pagan rituals at some of these poetry readings?! Pagan rituals are full of so much poetry! And why not human blood & animal blood and bright paint splattered all over the walls at our poetry readings?!

    And letís moon the audience at poetry readings! I mooned the audience at a poetry reading, and it was lots of fun!

    When I hear dogs barking I immediately think of Homer. When I hear cats screeching I think of Mr Bukowski. When I hear the weary wolves howl, well I naturally think of that Amercan poet whose name escapes me. So not only do I completely agree, I am a disciple before the fact!

    And of course Wolf when people pray they are unwittinly strengthening the Devil. We are in a cleft stick are we not. The Devil requires prayer - any kind. But why?

    Dear Ennison:

    Cannibalism is the solution. What we need is cannibalism. Also lots of poetry. And to pee all over the big publishing conglomerates & prestigious literary magazines. I think that we also need to pee all over Washington DC (I mean that in a bipartisan manner) but I don't say that to get into a political discussion since political discussions are banned on this forum I only mean that we need to free literature. We need to free literature!
