Me Too! - PAD - Nov 8





Today’s PAD (Poem A Day) prompt from Daniel Ari is as follows:
Talk back to a dead poet. Choose a poem you like by a poet who is no longer living and offer a rebuttal.


 MY "DEAD POET":  PIET HEIN


 I'd like to know what this whole show
is all about before it's out.
                          — 
Piet Hein

MY RESPONSE:
And so would I, my friend, it’s true –
every bit as much as you.

The poem above is a "grook" by Piet Hein (16 December 1905 – 17 April 1996) a Danish scientist, mathemetician, inventor, designer, author and (yes,) POET.
