John V. Haynes: Selected Poems
Poetry » March 2002

Nietzche is Dead

Ecce Homo!

The syphilitic philosophical masturbator

Proclaiming God is Dead

From his thus spake Superman chair

Leaves me whispering to his long decayed flesh

As I breathe the 21st century wind - Iíll make up

My own mind motherfucker

Abbie, I Know You Would Be Laughing

Abbie, if you could only see past

The helmeted policemen of the grave

And see Steal This Book on spiritual

Suburban bookshelves next to

How To Talk To Your Guardian Angel and

Flag shirts that made the silent majority scream for your

Hippie head on sale for $19.95 at K-Mart

I know you would be holding your genuine patriotic stomach

From the pain of your riotous glee all the while

Figuring out a way to block panty wearing G-Men

From reading your e-mails
