Cause And Effect Poem by Charles Bukowski

Cause And Effect

Rating: 3.6


the best often die by their own hand
just to get away,
and those left behind
can never quite understand
why anybody
would ever want to
get away
from
them

Doesn't the American Psychological Association casually refer to this as 'survivor's guilt? '

Once again, another stroke of genius by this man. To think that one commentator referred to his writing as mediocre!

Just like with Kerouac, none of Bukowski's work is mediocre. This poem is brilliant!
