Whoops! Guess I'm not a *real* artist then. Better put *this* poet
out to the pasture before he starts polluting the list! :-)

In other words, I couldn't disagree more! Myself --and I'm sure a
lot of other *real* artists-- can incorporate the political meanings into
their art. I don't think there should be an actual 'guideline' for what an
artist must do to be real. Reality comes in many does art!

Ingredi Externus!
