I can't believe there's only one Bob Kaufman poem. How do you download?
When Kennedy was assassinated in 1963, Kaufman took a Buddhist vow of silence to protest the Vietnam war which lasted for ten years. During that period, until 1973, he neither spoke nor wrote anything. On the day the war ended, he walked into a coffeeshop and recited a poem called 'All Those Ships that Never Sailed.'
