Grandpa' Buk‘s Last Stand

9 Mar 1994




A sad window opens and blows sad wind;
The old writer dead over a new word processing computer;
And young, giggling children under the So. Cal. sun;

What fun is it to die of pneumonia--
Especially while trying to re-boot the goddammed computer
to expostulate ones last bit of knowledge?

The window in the air blows and a roach shares a sandwich;
The computer still hums -- dumb, dumb, dumb, computer
never booted and it never knew that you were gone;

But the flies knew, and they have laid their young on your last
sores;

Until someone identified you;
What did they care? 

Into The headline it read,
”Buk is dead, at last... It's about time.”
