look at pictures painted by presidents and unemployed prime ministersIn times o national peril Abomunists as reality Americans stand ready to drink themselves to death for their countryAbomunists do not feel pain no matter how much it hurtsAbomunists do not use the word Suare except when talking to SuaresAbomunists read newspapers only to ascertain their AbominubilityAbomunists never carry than fifty dollars in debt on themAbomunists believe that the solution to problems of religious bigotry is to have a Catholic candidate for president and a Protestant candidate for popeAbomunists do not write for money they write the money itselfAbomunists believe only what they dream only after it comes trueAbomunist children must be reared abominubly Abomunist poets confident that the new literary form foot printism has freed the artist of outmoded restrictions such as the ability to read and write or the desire to communicate must be prepared to read their work at dental colleges embalming schools homes for unwed mothers homes for wed mothers insane asylums USO canteens kindergartens and county jails Abomunists never compromise their rejectionary philosophy Abomunists reject everything except snowmen Abomunist Manifesto pg 231From Hart Leroy BibbsBe bleak spring but roll on northwardswith me through central park sign winding trailaround the lake and reservoirthrough the hilly

poem Song of the Broken Giraffe is an affirmation of his surrealization Kaufman is one of true poets that became known during the Beat Generation His images are magical and humorous than those of his contemporaries Immersed in the Marvelous Kaufman confronts the human condition directly in all its tragic facets Yet he giggles while struggling He is one of the greatest poets on this planet EarthKaufman is like Bird he too has always been High on Life He is the man that walks down crowded streets talking aloud to himself in spite of many too many unhip people running in the opposite direction instead of toward him Kaufman is a Bird of the poetic word called Bob His Solitudes give us all a chance to share his poetry with the international multitude Dig him Kaufman is a Bird Called
