A Poet's Untimely Death Due To Depressional Disease(Weldon Kees) . - Poem by Michael Gale

Divorced by booze...
His wife he would soon to lose.

Weldon Kees submerged his life...
For due to depression-He left his wife.

Suicide to him was the easy way out...
T'would make him more freely to get about.

His wanton and yearning soul...
Once willed released-
T'would make him whole.

Music and rhyme and art was once his life...
A most sinister cloud t'would cause him to
decease himself fro' a most disenhearted alcohol riddled wife.

Many a poet succums to a depressioned ride...
And in the end they do commit to a lifeless suicide.

Facts of bothering inbeds deeply inside of their's skin...
Removing themselves from a most dreary lifely sin.

In life he held one man art shows...
He wrote a movie book.

He worked in a library...
His life was not nice but instead was contrary.

So due to being sad...
Of his own life his Devil caused it sadly took.
