all these so called educated people talking about how much they hated him
it made me curious how much theyd read
but surprisingly they had lots of examples of how bad he was
terrible examples, of course, because everything they posted was beautiful
it just shows to go ya half the world isn’t gonna love you
no matter who you are.
no matter what you do.
no matter what you write down, or experience, or battle through
bukowski was living in the worst part of skid row
and he died a millionaire.
and it was the opposite of top 40
it was dirty and grimy and lots of times he painted himself out as the villain
and for sure not heroically.
that alone is worthy of praise
but i didnt wanna fight em.
some things you cannot debate to the madding crowd
