Comrades In Black (OSI)

Comrades In Black

If this were more than ordinary ink upon a page
would I have given, then, more than others gave
who (not being given, themselves, to outright rages)
left no more than merely ink, or less, upon a page?
No. We are but those who strut and fret on stages,
seek a lasting voice with which to voice a rant or rave
in common ink, no more, upon an ordinary page.
Oh, would that I have given as much as others gave.

  1. Is technology now to be a bummer? Video recording and binary bits, ones and zeros, with their microphone and keyboard entry devices have literally supplanted the pen and ink hand written printed page.
    BTW, I revorded music digitally in the 1960’s (Uncle Sam had that technology then) way before people knew it could be done any better than analog recordings.
