Humanity Poem by Gregory Corso


Rating: 2.8

What simple profundities
What profound simplicities
To sit down among the trees
and breathe with them
in murmur brool and breeze —

And how can I trust them
who pollute the sky
with heavens
the below with hells

Well, humankind,
I’m part of you
and so my son

but neither of us
will believe
your big sad lie

Should brool be brook? Otherwise an interesting poem.

I liked this very much. I remember Gregory. Good poet. Of course he was with Jack and Allen and the other Beats.
