Here you will find the Poem having the flu and with nothing else to do of poet Charles Bukowski
I read a book about John Dos Passos and according to the book once radical-communist John ended up in the Hollywood Hills living off investments and reading the Wall Street Journal this seems to happen all too often. what hardly ever happens is a man going from being a young conservative to becoming an old wild-ass radical however: young conservatives always seem to become old conservatives. it's a kind of lifelong mental vapor-lock. but when a young radical ends up an old radical the critics and the conservatives treat him as if he escaped from a mental institution. such is our politics and you can have it all. keep it. sail it up your ass.
