There Was A Genius

There Was A Genius

There was a genius who lived alone.
He had a pocketful of time —

Although his thoughts weren’t worth
A dime —
To the hurried minds of idiots.

He was a genius,
Who saw the cracks in society,
Who saw the city in its monied way.

He had a pocketful of poems from a life,
Spent roaming the streets in observation.

Although they thought he wasn’t worth
A dime —
Being an original mind was his only crime.
