Irving Peter Layton - a Romanian-born Canadian poet. He was known for his "tell it like it is" style which won him a wide following, but also made him enemies. As T. Jacobs notes in his biography, Layton fought Puritanism throughout his life: "Layton's work had provided the bolt of lightning that was needed to split open the thin skin of conservatism and complacency in the poetry scene of the preceding century, allowing modern poetry to expose previously unseen richness and depth." - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irving_Layton
God is indeed dead.
He died of self-horror
when He saw the creature He had made
in His own image.
When you argue with your inferiors, you convince them of only one thing: they are as clever as you.
Idealist: a cynic in the making.
'And me happiest when I compose poems:
Love, power, the huzza of battle
are something, are much:
yet a poem includes them like a pool
water and reflection.''
“Since I no longer expect anything from mankind except madness, meanness, and mendacity; egotism, cowardice, and self-delusion, I have stopped being a misanthrope.”
