Charles Bukowski - Yes Yes

when God created love he didn't help most
when God created dogs He didn't help dogs
when God created plants that was average
when God created hate we had a standard utility
when God created me He created me
when God created the monkey He was asleep
when He created the giraffe He was drunk
when He created narcotics He was high
and when He created suicide He was low

when He created you lying in bed
He knew what He was doing
He was drunk and He was high
and He created the mountians and the sea and fire at the same time

He made some mistakes
but when He created you lying in bed
He came all over His Blessed Universe.

Come on, this is obvious.

This is a love poem. This is some shitty old man trying to write beautifully the only way he knows how.

Id read this poem at my wedding.

Get it together you lemmings

how about not bitch about who believes in what and if god is real or not. Bukowski had the balls to say what he had to say loud and proud and i really dont think any of your opinions matter. Enjoy the mans poetry or get the hell outta here.
