Chapter 2 --- Poems from Shaveon Smanters

NIN CHANG PO - SHAVEON SMANTERS (1991)
What the f***? That is him...
What the f***? That is him...


Hell to the yea I would say
Because I was on my way
To Nin Chang Po
To hang with an Asian bro
Nict Nine Zibin Zane I would state
Because I'm happy to be with my mate
Who isn't my mate yet
But why the hell do you think I'm going there?
To propose to him so we can get drunk that night
And then divorce him, leave, and make him pick up the tab
And the federal charges too.
I love China!


WHOA - SHAVEON SMANTERS (1969)

Best.
Year.
Ever.


I GOT CHANGE IN MY POCKET - SHAVEON SMANTERS (1932)

No, not coinage you racist.
Actual change, for I want to change the world
I know it will be difficult, but I am willing
To do what is necessary to change the world

No, not that you sick minded fool.
Things like legalizing same sex marraige
So people can go to bars in Vegas and not feel so bad the next day
I'm willing to climb a mountain to deliver change

No, I will not "climb up your mountain"... jesus dude...
But you get the idea, I want to to things like
Legalizing marijuana so that I can go to bars in Vegas and not feel so bad the next day.
I love America!


I DON'T KNOW WHAT THAT LAST POEM WAS - SHAVEON SMANTERS (1933)

That last poem was pretty dumb
I don't know why I wrote it
I think it was because I felt bad for a homeless guy
For a bit

But maybe I can change the world
But it would be a ton of work
On, second thought, no way I'm not going to help
You jerks

I don't know what that last poem was
But I thought it could have been great
If people in this world grasped my ideals
Instead of ate

I don't know what that last line was
It may have been worse than my last poem
But maybe it too had a hidden meaning.
Like ho-hum

Or something else that rhymes with poem...


WHY THE WORLD IS BLUE - SHAVEON SMANTERS (1955)

Why is the world blue you might say
Well here is the answer to your inquiray
The world is blue because water is blue
And water is blue because of pollution from people like you
No offense, maybe you don't pollute
Maybe you are just really good player of the lute
I'm not really sure, that was just a generalization
That was meant for the benefit of our generation
But if you pollute, I will find you
And you will pay your dues
So, don't pollute otherwise I will kick your ass


DAMN YOU GUYS - SHAVEON SMANTERS (2010)

Congrats on polluting the entire world
Thanks for listening to my words of wisdom
You guys suck!


BIEGFRIED BASSON - SHAVEON SMANTERS (1977)

I read a recently published collection of his works
In an attempt to master my craft with his advice
And then my friend came in with some booze
And fuck this poem... I have booze now!


THE WORLD IS AN OYSTER - SHAVEON SMANTERS (1776)
