    the dead the dead the god damned dead, the dead rule the world, the god damned dead. A pre 70's poem. did LF write this?

    I loved the eccentricity of his long auto poem. Love his sarcasm? (can't remember the right word) He gets it right. I think there is more pain from ignorance than from any joy. Yes, I like the way he expresses associated hypocrisy. His writing certainly appeals to me.

    You helped me change my life, I read Poet Of The Streets in Boulder Col. And hit it well people stood up at that coffee shop Penny Lane a few blocks from the Naropa Inst. I was so scared cause the size of the crowd grew because Ann Waldman had a book release up on the hill off Boulder... I ran out to get a half pint of Jim Beam and guzzeled down and nailled your poem did not stuttered at all and I have a stamer. I wish you the best.

    Not inquiring about poems in the last 14 days, am trying to trace a poem which I beleive was written by him containg the lines Pity the Nation whose people are sheep, and whose shepherds mislead them..etc

    Good poet, but never should have announced a reading right after TMI or compared all of us who had been told either nothing or contradictory tales by industry and government to sheep. The poor guy had no sense of responsibility to us, no idea of what was happening, and basically was making a buck from the near-disaster.

Best Poem of Lawrence Ferlinghetti

The World Is A Beautiful Place

The world is a beautiful place
to be born into
if you don't mind happiness
not always being
so very much fun
if you don't mind a touch of hell
now and then
just when everything is fine
because even in heaven
they don't sing
all the time

The world is a beautiful place
to be born into
if you don't mind some people dying
all the time
or maybe only starving
some of the time
which isn't half bad
if it isn't you

Oh the world is a beautiful place
to be born into
if you don't much mind
a few dead minds
in the higher ...

The Changing Light

The changing light
                 at San Francisco
       is none of your East Coast light
                none of your
                            pearly light of Paris
The light of San Francisco
                        is a sea light
                                       an island light
And the light of fog
