This has to be one of the most messed up peoms I have read in my life.
This guy was high half of the time and his poems are complete garbage.
This is just one large rant that anyone could have written. And I
personally find it Ironic that he is gay and he says "go fuck yourself with
an atom bomb." =p
I'm sooo glad that he is not around anymore to plague us with this crap.

I'm curious if $2.27 is the minimum wage or something of the time.

I really like this one, maybe even a little more than Howl.
