The man of engagement

Da Poet og D|o|G, 2007 | Hvilke muligheder for eksistentielt engagement står mennesket over for i begyndelsen af det 21. århundrede, og hvilke krav stilles der til en selvstændig eksistens i forhold til andre mennesker eller endog dyr i en verden, der tror sig selvberoende? Disse temaer danner ramme og grundlag for dette digt, hvis skønhed næsten kan tvinge tårerne frem hos enhver sand kunstkender. Læseren er nær ved at kunne blive forbrændt af de kunstneriske gnister, som her opstår, når de to digteriske skaber-genier for første gang digter i fællesskab. Dette digt er fundamental-ontologi på højeste niveau.

The man of engagement

When not making push ups, his monkey brain erupts
Loves to drink and party and show his biceps
Idolizing redneck, wife beating type of men
Hates homosexuals and poetry in French
If you don’t like Harleys and NASCAR
He will beat you senseless at the local sports bar

Whenever doing the infamous push ups
He expects people to watch and dance
‘Cuz he likes to party to the beat of Sunny Beach
Some girls touch his thighs and he turns green
For them thighs are rusty and not very polite
But he is a kind man and rapes only one of the girls

He is outsmarted by his bulldog Jeff
And by almost every single animal pet
He rips things apart when getting mad
Hides his feelings and pretends to be bad
Crushing beer cans against his forehead
Is the president of the union: Muscles and Meatheads

The man of engagement lies beneath a bell-shaped claw
He smells like a drain and loves the people of the earth
Every day when he wakes up he shouts and screams:
“I love people – they’re my children”
But unfortunately people don’t respond
‘Cuz they don’t know his chimerical name.
