A Poem from 1968, Revised by the Ghost of Richard Brautigan, 2004 (twentieth in a series)

A Boat

O beautiful

was the werewolf

in his evil forest.

We took him

to the carnival

and he started


when he saw

the Ferris wheel. Michael Moore eating a corndog.

Electric Deepfried

green and red tears golden brown tears

flowed down

his furry cheeks.

He looked

like a boat

out on the dark

water.  [For his

part, Michael

Moore looked like

a squat dinosaur

gnawing the flesh

off some poor

woman’s frail and

splintered femur. 

The slovenly

  1. I’m glad I finally googled Richard Brautigan. I had no idea how hilarious these posts really are.

  2. can I laugh at lit,

    after teaching freshman comp?

    Yes, protein wisdom.

    and a little gift, if you haven’t seen it already: http://www.jibjab.com/.

  3. Moore abuse!  I can’t get enough!

  4. This type of mower is excellent for cutting uneven lawns, however, if you’re after a traditional striped lawn, go for a model with an in-built roller.
