Thursday Verse: "#9" - Lawrence Ferlinghetti

#9

                    "Truth is not the secret of a few"
                                                                 yet
you would maybe think so
                                           the way some
                    librarians
     and cultural ambassadors and
                                   especially museum directors
                                                                                act

               you'd think they had a corner
                                                               on it
                  the way they
                                       walk around shaking
        their high heads and
                                      looking as if they never
            went to the bath
                         room or anything

                But I wouldn't blame them
if I were you
                     They say the Spiritual is best conceived
   in abstract terms
                      and then too
       walking around in museums always make me
                    want to
                                 "sit down"
               I always feel so
                                         constipated
          in those
                       high altitudes
