The Validation of Time

So many idols of my youth
Are writing biographical books…
Flying decades under the radar,
Now catching respectable looks.

Chapter one, school in the fifties,
Antique cars, shock values we contrived…
Controversial projects,
Now are mainstream; we survived.

Patti Smith’s a five-star author,
Warhol has fifty years of fame…
Kerouac’s pulled off the road,
But the world knows his name.

Artistic rebels and free spirits,
Risked reputations way back then…
Chapter Sixty of my life,
Is dedicated to these men
