My name is David Lester Young, I am an Poet, Somewhere in America, Not on Company Time, living my American Dream, I also use a Franklin Doppelganger persona.
I was Terminated for Poetry, and I thought that God had given a gift that needed to be used. So I put most of my personal belonging in storage, and I am living in motels and sometimes in friend's homes for short periods of time.
On a trip into the San Francisco Bay Area, i seen this man keep looking me over. he finally came over, and said, "I hope you are not offended, but you look like Ben Franklin."
I replied, "Thank God, I thought you were going to say I looked like Dick Cheney." We laughed but that started the Ben side of me. That I answer to Ben, Dave, David and to some other names.
I was Terminated for Poetry in 2005 receiving my Scarlet Letter Resume diploma while being a Vietnam vet Era Free Speech poet and writer. That poetry cannot be obscene in questioning our surroundings. That one may find something offensive in my writing, But it is not the gutter language you will find in a an assembly shop.
I write my Philospher side under the Franklin Doppelganger label posting a date it was conceived.
To say, I am always Right leaves me LEFT to be wrong. to find the facts that defines TRUTH.
That if one does not create a sentence, the how can one have an existence.
