Poem Fix of the Day. July 6th, 2011.

Today’s pick comes from beatnik legend Allen Ginsburg.  I had a hard time finding one that was PG.

Millions of people cheering and waving flags for joy in Manhattan

Yesterday’ve returned to their jobs and arthritis now Tuesday–

What made them want so much passion at last, such mutual delight–

Will they ever regain these hours of confetti’d ecstasy again?

–Allen Ginsburg, from After the Big Parade.
