An Antidote To the Rise of Fascism in the 21st Century

As has been reported here previously, one Canadian in an hundred will crack open a book of poetry in any given year.


In an hundred.

Goes without saying, therefore, that the most recent offering from the DCFP, titled “Poetry” got read less than anything else we have produced all year. Canadians would rather eat shit than read poetry.

People have taken to looking for answers for the Rise of Fascism. It is a question that gets inadequately answered all the fucking time. The answer, it seems to me, is a lack of poetry in people’s lives.

It is possible to shit and read poetry simultaneously and many of us have done it.

I remember a quote by somebody, somewhere: "Poetry is the business of the Poet . . . and everybody else can just fuck off."

Perhaps I should change the name of the DCFP to the DCIAFP.
