POEM SHARE: those good people

those good people

the worst celebrities often support the most noble causes,
some because so directed by their
publicity agents,
others, of the less famous
out of their need to be
accepted as good

beware these who rally too often to
popular causes,
not because the cause is
necessarily wrong
but because their motive is
self-serving—the cause being
their cause.
those people who swarm to
the ringing of bells and
speeches to the gatherings of
the righteously
and often those who
ring the bells and give the
are far worse as humans
than that or those they might
praise or support
or preach or rail

think, would you want
one of these
smiling on your couch
on a rainy March night
any night
at all?

Charles Bukowski
