(trying to write this like Woody)

With the drum beat drum beating
I saw Woody Harrelson completing
his sentences, contemplances, without hesitances.

I tried my hardest to think like he
apparently a very peaced out brother, completely free
taking on Dupont while sitting under a tree

But man, that bit about the tree
Did you see? Not a room for loving, or living.

When the poem hits that point I laugh so hard I nearly pee.

Who's got a beer?
I don't know about y'all,
But, I could party.

It's incredible that someone can be gifted with so much insightful intelligence and refined talent.

the dream is over john, get a remote, shoehorn experience into tidy moral post-it notes and gelcaps like ritalin for school children who cant envision the importance of incorporating middle school vocabulary into their itinerary before reaching puberty. learning and experience go hand in hand, but kids eat tv-dinner equivalents of what they could wholly understand, plastic forks and no room to expand. Would you look those kids in the eyes and deny them the option of dreaming a hopeless dream? "If youre not breathing Bush and Kerry, you oughtta be buried!?" before you lash your whipping boy, try and remember the name Woody Harrelson also has two eyes.
