    As good a time as ever to post one of my favorite poems. It appeared in a posthumous collections re-written by John Martin. The title changed to 'Democracy and the meaning changed thus dulling the impact of the piece. I'll post it here the way Hank wrote it:




    the other day I saw a man reading the Wall Street Journal as if it did contain something---


    the problem, of course, isn't within the System, it's the
    parts that make up the System--such as
    the first person you pass on the street on any given
    day: multiply
    him or
    her by
    3 or 4 or 30 or 40 million
    and you will know
    immediately
    why things remain in a non-functional state
    or
    worse.

    I wish I had a cure for these chess pieces of
    Humanity...

    they've undergone any number of false
    cures

    but the one on the way
    NOW
    will cure almost
    everybody:

    bright at
    last: one bunghole, one
    intestine, one last giant
    wail
    swallowing
    Noah
    the Ark
    the Crucifiction
    the Crucifixation
    the fleas
    the floozies
    the fucks
    the fakers
    name
    it

    the problem never was the
    System, the problem was

    you
