Walt Whitman Is Dead

Walt Whitman is dead
and WE have killed him.

By denying the soul,
refusing to sing,

by cloaking ourselves in craftiness
and offering ourselves
to the lowest of drives,

we have killed the man
who would have us sing,

who taught us to sing
with a barbaric YAWP!
from the rooftops of the world.

Walt Whitman is dead
and we have killed him.
