The Middle Finger a poem

/\ by Charles Bukowski

 

 

The drivers of automobiles

have very little recourse or

originality.

When upset with

another

driver

they often give him the

FINGER.



I have seen two adult

men

florid of face

driving along

giving each other the

FINGER.



Well, we all know what

this means, it's no

secret.



Still, this gesture is

so overused it has

lost most of its

impact.



Some of the men who give

the FINGER are captains of

industry, city councilmen,

insurance adjusters,

accountants and/or the just plain

unemployed.

No matter.

It is their favorite

response.



People will never admit

that they drive

badly.



The FINGER is their

reply.



I see grown men

FINGERING each other

throughout the day.



It gives me pause.

When I consider

the state of our cities,

the state of our states,

the state of our country,


I begin to understand.

The FINGER is a mind-set.

 

 

We are the FINGERERS.

 

 

We give it

to each other.


 

We give it coming and

going.

We don't know how

else to respond.



What a hell of a way

to not

live.
