Self portait speak for it self,
The eyes of a man tales the tale,
Not where there from,

A story to yet to be told......

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I call this crazy 88er the year of the dragon because this around when crack and dope hit the street. It was a statistic that my mom told me that if you had children between 1970's in between the 1980's. You have a better chance of raising your child. If you look at technology it more important in some case the people in the white house. Things have chance so much with the involves of technology and clothes and it lend to peer pressure. Then it like a domino effect you see what you know good or bad and most time bad and all by the look in there eye you can tell what they may or may do. So I question the Chinese calendar and they have year for dynasty and they repeat mine is the dragon and I think in 2018 or 2016 that year come up again and with those years come up again I question is something important with happen base on that philosophy. once again this is when dope and crack hit the scene and now is molly tell me if I'm catching on if history repeats it's self some how.

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
