There Was A Genius
written by: Robin McNamara
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.
