Looking for Ginsberg

I'm looking for Ginsberg
to Howl over the Fall of America.
I'm looking for Abbie, Jerry, and Bobby
and the other historians of
this nation. I'm looking
for those who once cared
so much for this country-
they protested, marched,
stormed buildings, held
press conferences, and festivals.
They gave interviews, wore costumes,
and organized speeches.
What happened toDellenger,
Weiner, and Froines, those
men who weren't afraid of
our government or the law,
who would take a stand?
I'm searching for those
people to shake off our
apathy, to stir my
generation into action,
into making a difference.
The gas falls on all of us.
We're up against the wall, Mother.
