Dear fyi,Backing Israel was an ideological frgieon policy decision made by
the US, which it is sincerely regretting today. I am positive that Obama
would cut them off right now if he could, but a) the US is essentially
being held hostage by Israel, and b) the ideologues in DC would lynch Obama
should he cut Israel off.

Ginsbergīs best poem ever

Well, the dude had also some other & fantastic stuff (Howl, Is About,
Crossing Nation, and so on). The thing is -at least for me- that the here
mentioned text condenses in an extremely virtuous way the feelings & mood
from his age; thatīs something to be thanked. I personally appreciate those
words as a testimony of KKK-Martin Luther King Jr; unbelievable and savage
but still topical subject.
Anyway, is a bleak/ironic/lascivious text to celebrate.

I think not his best poem. The sentiment is probably close, i.e., humility
does aid peace, but it's shorter than his usual stuff and just seems to be
a fragment of what he might have written hundreds of words around if he
wanted to.

This poem fits its title, it's kickass. Whoever wrote that first comment is
a POS!!!

Just because a poet has written good poetry on occasion, or even regularly
doesn't mean that all of their peotry is worth printing or posting as a
Poem of the day or week, or month. Kissass is a POS.
