Plagiarism (For Ajs)

Poem By Herbert Nehrlich

One thing that's worse than communism
is known to us as plagiarism.

In poetry the theft of work
shows traces of a low-life jerk.
The answer, as it's always been,
is the old-fashioned guillotine.

and motionless until she saw my face.
Damn, it was obvious, he had been truly slaughtered,

I was not looking when you found me
you stopped just long enough to smile.
I felt your presence all around me
and hoped that you would stay awhile.

A Little Bit Of Darkness

It had gone dark in my world.
An invisible sadness, one of substance
drifted in, from a horizon so far
and so unknown to me,
