⁣Calling Gil Scott-Heron a 'Beat poet genius' is doing him a disservice. Gil Scott-Heron wrote books, screen plays, music was a critic of various leaders bot black and white...I could go on, but you get the picture?

I wouldn't withdraw my comment as my concept of a true Poet is not casual, Subcommandant Marcos of EZLN fame, Pablo Neruda, the humble and enigmatic Rumi orinally of Afghanistan, writer of the most read literature in the world, Gibran and Omar Khayam, supreme alchemists of language, Neruda Pablo of Chile and the old bard himself Shakespeare or whatever group of literary visionaries he represented used languge in transformative, evocative and revolutionary ways. I would go as far as saying that to my ears Patrice Lamumba's words were revolutionary poetry. And I will never forget what one of my early teachers told me when I dared to read him some of my own scriblings, many moons ago, "It is said that poetry is the language of the gods", considring the above I'm not sure what greater accolade I could give Gil?

22 years ago, I had a ticket for his up coming concert here in Vancouver. They wouldn't allow Gil to cross the border, because of the content of his politics. I still have the ticket, framed on my wall.
