Bukowski

I read some Bukowski poems today;
He often had something compelling to say.
With imagery soaring as high as a kite!
Love him or loathe him, he knew how to write!
Somewhat prolific, and often terrific!
Not just a writer, but also a fighter!
He could be quite coarse, and unrefined,
But clearly he had a remarkable mind.
A scruff and a slob, with a menial job,
It\'s almost as if he aimed low in life;
But his words cut through like a whetted knife!
Just one thing really left to say:
Go read some Bukowski poems today!
