    • POEM: Four Low by Barry Van Allen (10/12/2007 11:30:00 AM)

      DISCLAIMER: I HAVE BEEN A CAR SALESMAN FOR 20 YEARS.

      This poem has sought to denigrate politicians, lawyers, and car salesmen. This is not very original, creative, or courageous, considering the tenacity of the three classes of professionals so bluntly attacked. We all want our communities governed, our courts to function, and we all want to buy the cars we need or want. But, just like children who frown while taking Castor-oil, or all of us who would like to go to heaven, if only we didn't have to die, some people insist upon this kind of
      pandering, piling-on rhetoric. Thinking it clever, some people, like this 'poet, ' abandon craft in favor of currying favor with the masses. This poet should see whether he has any real thoughts, and then let us see he has any real literary talent.
