The Sage by Stanley Shapiro

When Dennis met Kalinich

He was standing in the center of the stage

Lookin like a teacher

He could’ve been a preacher

Or maybe the community sage

He was a man with something to say

A poet way ahead of his day


The rock and roll, rolling sage

He wrote songs with the very best

And delivered philosophy to all the rest

He was the poet of his day

A man with something to say
