The Dumb Ass With A Keyboard - Poem by Justin Tallman

Play Poem Video

A dumb ass with a keyboard
types down words
perceived to be mystical answers
to questions of truth

But the paragraphs runs in circles
and the metaphors
never accurately hit the poor nail
on the head
instead
it leaves a handicapped puncture
in the wooden plank
meant to hold up the unplanned structure

A dumb ass with a keyboard
types a sentence like:
'Art thow walketh plank behold
the eye of adolesent fate
among the charlatans painted
in shadow's misteak'
and he types this sentence
for the sole purpose
of getting laid

A dumb ass with a keyboard
takes his contraption of written language
to public places
occupied by young teenage women

He types the keys
spontaneous with a planned out
expression of lunacy
but the letters are nonsensical
but what do they care?

The dumb ass is a writer
a poet
filling blank pages
to impress the short skirts

He's doing something
with his time
shouldn't you?
