The Poet Peter Reading by Peter Edwards

PETER READING (1946-2011)


Together we’ll round up:
all the shyster lawyers;

all the indulged phoney artists;
all the hypocrite sky-pilots;
all the academics who spout shite;
all the slipshod tabloid journalists;
all the eighth-rate assholes who’ve contributed
to this universal fucking con-trick –
we’ll round them up and exile them to hell for keeps!

By doing this
we shall seize truth, after its long absence,
be able, at last, properly to see,
touch, smell, love.
