Once Again I Am Inspired By Leonard Cohen

"When I was about fifteen
I followed a beautiful girl
Into the Communist Party of Canada..."

Leonard Cohen published that ten years ago. Nice poem, most of his are. I am un-Canadian enough to not love the Tragically Hip but not un-Canadian enough to not love Leonard Cohen's poetry.

Many poets all over this world would trade their own foot steps for Cohen's at the drop of a pen. Not me. If, when fifteen, I had followed a beautiful girl, it would have been into the Social Credit Party of Canada.
