Genius Among Fools

I’m real cool,
I left school,
I lurk late,
I strike straight,
I sing sin,
I drink Gin,
I jazz June,
and I die soon!

And the Wild Regrets,
And the Bloody Sweats,
When none knew to well than I,
For who lives more lives than one,
More deaths than one must die!

And I find peace,
I hear angels,
I see the stars sparking with diamonds,

And I see the Best of Minds of my generation
in their worst of times
In the Age of Foolishness
And the Season of Darkness
Giving their Spring of Hopes
to the Winter of Despair

Acting cool,
Leaving school,
Lurking late,
Striking straight,
Singing sin,
Drinking Gin,
Jazzing June,
then dying soon!

And I say now, the people
As some lessons repeated
Now, the lights are off, to myself
As a lover, or at the cold wind
‘Let your rapid lives be a graph of me’
