Michael Pruchnicki


A movement


he is not your average politician
I'll grant you that

more a leader of a movement
that offers phantom hope

to a world of concrete reality
death and taxes

eloquent to a fault
some say

    Eloquence is so often the downfall of the careful man. Eventually the words float away and all that is left to fill the balloon are rocks and stones and other heavy, immoveable reminders of how it really is. (Report) Reply

    Both he and his brother got themselves shot. As the Stones's song goes, 'Ya know it was you and me'...
