Some of the Ernest Hemingway Poems

Poem- Advice to a Son

Never trust a white man,
Never kill a Jew,
Never sign a contract,
Never rent a pew.
Don’t enlist in armies;
Nor marry many wives;
Never write for magazines;
Never scratch your hives.
Always put paper on the seat,
Don’t believe in wars,
Keep yourself both clean and neat,
Never marry whores.
Never pay a blackmailer,
Never go to law,
Never trust a publisher,
Or you’ll sleep on straw.
All your friends will leave you
All your friends will die
So lead a clean and wholesome life
And join them in the sky.

Poem: The age demanded

The age demanded that we sing
and cut away our tongue.

The age demanded that we flow
and hammered in the bung.

The age demanded that we dance
and jammed us into iron pants.

And in the end, the age was handed the
sort of shit that it demanded.
