Why Should I Be Bitter

Poem By Saigyo

went to Ali bongos
music stall down street
living in the Congo's
then he got itchy feet

started doing jazz
sold his soul to punk
getting into razzmatazz
then the shop just sunk

DJ bongo, set up shop
down the end of street
selling various hip hop
street had funky beat

started doing house music
then got into mega rap
some of it was abusive
end of poem clap

let me push even deeper
into the mountain!

Despise each other? For
Not known and unknowing

The Monk Saigyo

Should I blame the moon
For bringing forth this sadness,
As if it pictured grief?
Lifting up my troubled face,
