This Be The Verse (2001)
by Philip Larkin

They fuck you up, your mum and dad.
++They may not mean to, but they do.
They fill you with the faults they had
++And add some extra, just for you.

But they were fucked up in their turn
++By fools in old-style hats and coats,
Who half the time were soppy-stern
++And half at one another’s throats.

Man hands on misery to man.
++It deepens like a coastal shelf.
Get out as early as you can,
++And don’t have any kids yourself.

Walt Whitman

Preface to the 1855 edition of Leaves of Grass.

This is what you shall do: Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body.
