I have been beaten for poetic stands against wars men have generated, and I have been beaten during war in the name of liberty, and emerged a victor over the scars. I have sat with great poets of many years and expounded thought into form that would astound gods. I have stood on stages and moved audiences to tears and laughter, and simply been comfortably numbed by it all. if you are beat in any way by what life hands you, and you wail or shout with joy, or dance in verbs across a page then you too are a beat poet. Thus ignoramuses of tender years or
old school that
claim to know what is beat....
those who are
always arguing against the beat of other's hearts into script usually have it spelled it wrong and are simply thinking of that purple vegetable that is similar to their pickled minds.
