poems I purchased
    #2121060 - 11/18/03 10:43 PM (14 years, 27 days ago)

So I was walking into Peet's Coffee early last Sunday evening and I was accosted by a homeless gentleman. He showed me his shrapnel scars from Viet Nam. He was offering 5 poems for 10 bucks on photocopied placemats with handdrawn illustrations. I told him "No I couldn't swing it". I was trying to read his handwritten poetry while I said this. I gave him $1. He said he'd give me 5 poems for one more dollar. I accepted the offer. I could post the poetry if anyone's interested. It's holiday oriented.

Is Peet's Coffee a chain cause there's one down the street from me. Do we have to pay you a dollar to see the poems?

bert, yeah it's a chain I guess.  Have you tried it?
I will scan these at Kinkos and put them up.  I like what he says in the poems.
I think most people will like them.  I gave the best one away but I remember it  (I think).  I will paraphrase anyway. :thumbup:  The poet would most likely approve.  I'll probably see him again.

Maybe I could find this guy and see if he has a mailing address to send him some cash if ya want.  I wish I could give him more.  He is really doing a great service.  You'll see what I mean when you read his words. :thumbup:
I didn't make it to kinkos but I'll give you the first one.  It was very short.  It went something like this:
  Great Expectations
We have come so far with so little
We can now be expected to achieve the impossible
with nothing

I probably screwed it up.  :crazy:
The rest are longer and have little drawings.
