Chris Port Blog #29: Marty Gull Song #13. How To Stifle A Writer

“How to stifle a writer?”
“Just one way” said the frightened fools
“The way used by ev’ry shyster
Since the crooks took over the schools.”
“Do I sermon him?” I teased the preacher
“Do I listen or argue or think?
Do I dare to learn from a teacher?”
Said they, smirking: “No, just blink.
How to stifle a writer?
Mark his card, for his life is sin:
The way to stifle a writer
Is to crush him...simply crush him...
Merely crush him...crush him...crush him.”
