William H.A. Willbond MSM, CD
WRITING ABOUT WHAT WE KNOW
Shit-can Can-Lit from your group
‘cause we don’t really give a poop
about those Prima Donna writers
go back to rifle company fighters!
Back where lads would march all day
then buy you beer and share their pay
sleep under stars upon the ground
and talk about all things, profound
Write about the things you know
pulling a toboggan o’er the snow
shooting stars and Amsterdam bars
motor cycles and fast new cars
Fraulines with silky long blonde curls
Norwegian, Dutch, and German Girls
Write about when you were young
fine women, and jazz, and fun, fun, fun!

Author’s Note: Advice to my friend, John-Ward Leighton, after he received a somewhat negative “Art Speak” critique from a poet whose books of poetry, despite receiving critical approval, do not sell.
