Random Lyrics Thursday
I saw the best minds of my generation running on empty, superglued to the T.V.,
Watch all the bridges collide,
I saw the best minds of my generation caught up in the virtual reality of living
Jesus said " Lay down your arms". Jesus said "Children come home".
Scared shitless, witless, clueless, useless, tightlipped, tightfisted,tightassed, half-assed, sniveling, groveling, moaning, groaning.

you have lifted some of the lines in your poem from alan ginsberg's howl. this is one of the most famous american poems EVER and i would consider giving him his credit or you are essentially plagiarizing his work.
Psst! Meg Lee Chin can't hear you from here! But in any event, all she did was take the opening line of (as you say) a very recognizable poem and then go her own way with it, making it more of an homage, and certainly not plagiarism.
