This was not written by me. It just resonates . . . . . . . To the Censorious Ones

BY ANNE WALDMAN

I’m coming up out of the tomb, Men of War

Just when you thought you had me down, in place, hidden

I’m coming up now

Can you feel the ground rumble under your feet?

It’s breaking apart, it’s turning over, it’s pushing up

It’s thrusting into your point of view, your private property

O Men of War, Censorious Ones!

Get ready, Big Boys, get ready

I’m coming up now

I’m coming up with all that was hidden

Get ready, Big Boys, get ready

I’m coming up with all you wanted buried,

All the hermetic texts with stories in them of hot & dangerous women

Women with lascivious tongues, sharp eyes & claws

I’ve been working out, my muscles are strong

I’m pushing up the earth with all you try to censor

All the iconoclasm & bravado you scorn

All the taunts against your banner & salute

I’m coming up from Hell with all you ever suppressed

All the dark fantasies, all the dregs are coming back

I’m leading them back up now

They’re going to bark & scoff & rage & bite

I’m opening the box

boo!

That sounds like someone coming out of a depressed state...banishing all fear?

Just curious, but is that how you broke it down? I believe you may have a point.

Very sexually dareing in nature - what is the year was this published? If around or after V day would have been devious!

Can't answer that Mr. Barcode. It was from a book of oems she published dated 1985-2003. It was an open address to Senator Jesse Helms. He was in office until 2003, so sometime prior to that. What is V day?

Going backward it seems like they are emerging from poverty into a struggle to maintain the status. Where the deceitful were coming from many angles to pull them back into poverty.

Who's they? And who do you see as deceitful. Maybe you see something I don't but my impression was that emergers were operating from a position of strength. I see thaem as going so far as to taunt oppressors, "Get ready, Big Boys, get ready

I’m coming up with all you wanted buried,

All the hermetic texts with stories in them of hot & dangerous women." But thats just me
