I'm a mild mannered sorta guy
Searching for my alter ego
I gotta lil super sidekick
Embarrassing me where we go

I'm not the Shadow of the Bat
I don't work for the Daily Planet
Though I'm a paperboy by night
And my head can bust up granite

Shh! What is that I'm hearing now?
The man is coming for the trash!
Ok I'm back and all is well
I got it out as if the Flash

I hate my job just as you might
I wear a shirt that says gone fishin
I drive a car that's just a fright
I hate those danged politicians

I have deemed myself Poetry Boy
In the night once papers deliver
The poetry muses run and hide
And the readers quake and shiver

Silverstein and Suess are my heroes
Yes I can holler like Tarzan
And Poetry Boy you gotta love him
He might just one day become a man




 Oh yuh!

... heh ...
you've got it
hang onto it as long as you can ... I'm 47 and I feel like Robin Williams ( 16 ) ... I like to be a person before being a man
and my person has no age

Hmmm...so you can holler like Tarzan, eh?
I don't mean to boast, but I can make Yoko
Ono 'noises'...a kindred spirit here.

Don't change a thing, Walt. Keep that Super-Hero status alive and you'll always be happy. Long live Silverstein!!!

Poetry boy, you are MY hero ...  

--Kess


 Full fathom five thy father lies,
Of his bones are coral made,
Those are pearls that were his eyes;
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange...


--William Shakespeare, from The Tempest

I sing my tearful song which has charms only for me."
