Country Joe McDonald and Basho

It's Country Joe McDonald's birthday. Here's a little something to commemorate it. Stick with it; after the annoying intro, it gets good, particularly "Who Am I."

And, from one of the Near Perfect Books of Poems, this selection from Basho and His Interpreters:

oh, nothing's happened to me!
yesterday has passed -
fugu soup

Homer Simpson's got nothing on Basho ...


PS If you would like to receive the two current issues of Lilliput Review free, just make a suggestion at the above Near Perfect Books link.

I'm going to suggest Pablo Neruda's 100 Love Sonnets. Always a pleasure to read your featured poems, Don.
