When Kerouac 

​When

Jack Kerouac 

Was alive

Most of us were

Nonexistent 

Yet

We’re familiar 

With his

Benzedrine 

Influenced 

Prose 

When

George Washington 

Was alive

Even more

Of us

Were 

Nonexistent 

Yet

We’re all

Familiar 

With that 

Cherry tree

He chopped 

Down

Down

When

George Bush 

Became 

A nihilist 

And did

Nihilist things 

Everything 

Quaked 

Shook 

Quaked 

Which

George Bush?

It doesn’t 

Matter

It doesn’t 

Matter 

Which one

….

What matters

Now is

How

We will or

Won’t be

Remembered 

In

A thousand years (how)
