    A nameless Poet

    Even dogs wear nametags
    Shed not mine for frenzy flags
    The fifth element is here
    And my mouth doesn’t wear a gag

    A decline in the arts
    Demands an anonymous price
    An ignominious price
    For tyrant’s revenues can’t get rich off of

    I’m more than one play
    I play to stay in the way
    Keeping haters at bay
    I live for today and the next day

    Kind cruelty is a slow death
    Where suspicion is proof
    And Kingly comets shed noble blood
    And loose their entire gleam

    Imperial governmental prerogatives
    Have subverted paper constitutions
    To unseal their irresistible urges
    To kill perpetual circulation of poems,
    Of essays, letters, books and opinions

    No one pays the bills
    So I write with ink quills
    Sit still on mountain hills
    And eat my plays like a pill,
    Of medicine for all the ill

    To be anonymous is a bold mistake
    This my friend I can not take
    Killing nametags is a fraudulent lost
    I live in spring rather than in frost

    Speak not well of the dead,
    For they have no earlobes
    Give them scented flowers while they live
    Caskets can’t smell the fragrance
    And that’s the analogy of a nameless poet

    Never "nameless."

    Flesh dies but your words live on forever.
