Poet Sighted In South Dakota - Poem by Sidi J. Mahtrow

It's news to those
Who follow poems (and prose)
About fellows of the skin
Who some would hope to be akin.

But there's another Poet lurking there
To which few would offer a chair
To sit on and indite
A line in joy, anger or spite.

For this Poet who has a residence
In several corn growing states; a certain presence
Where the Poet is known to produce
Bountiful gas by a fermentation route.

There are those who believe
That he has no intent to deceive
But goes about his way
Laying waste each and every day.

For he consumes more that he produces
Which is the toll when nature seduces
man to find an alternate way
To sate their hunger every day.

So it is, when Government sponsors art
Or activities for which they should have no part,
And supports those that recognize
That as long as they wear a proper disguise
Of providing a public service then,
All will be forgiven in the end.

Poet's ethanol from grain is such an issue
Because it consumes more energy than it produces!
