"The Butterfly~Autobiographire" by Deb E. Dee They couldn't see my beauty because their eyes were dirty
They couldn't hear my music because their ears were all
stopped up with their dirty eyes.
They couldn't know my worth, because I am priceless
standing on the corner
for twenty yeasrs , throwing songs out at passersby
like handgrenades , mortars and
the occassional atom bomb ,
I killed the facists .
The night George Bush
stole the governors office ,
the victory celebration bought them out in droves,
in an orgy of self congratulation,
some moneyed fool , full of drool, spit in my guitar
I was beaten.
Janis lasted eleven whole months in Austin .
They voted her
ugliest man on campus.
I died and went to heaven, and
my ghosts torments my oppressors .
He looks like a huge Indian with an axe in his head.
This is what the land costs, that you think to buy
with mere money, he says.
I never kissed one filthy ass,
and I never will.
but I have risen and I am as a butterfly
with wings of fire.
I will fly, to light up this dark night.
