    An enjoyable voice...curt, crisp and ripe with cutting clarity and insight.

    It occurred to me this morning that no matter why I sign onto this site, if there's a Lawrence Beck post, I'm there. I have yet to be disappointed by anything you've written, Monsieur Beck, and that says a lot. Your poems are tight, real, and manage to balance between pure artistry and readability. It is a pleasure to read you here!
    Cheers, Lori

That's Capitalism

The ante's gotten higher, but the game,
Alas, remains the same.Where, once,
Suited superiors insisted that you
Sacrifice your health, breathe dirty air,
Go deaf, lose limbs and so forth,
Now, they're saying, "Give your life
To make us rich.Come back to work.
Get sick and die, or take the virus
From the floor to strike your parents
