The Imaginary Man (Prelude)

Tony Brown is hereby declared
mostly imaginary!
This fat man is assigned a kindness rating
(low),
a humor rating
(medium-high),  an artist rating
(ooooh sarcasm for his impossible genius!)  

Tony Brown, our monkey
of longevity,
he of the incorrigible
balls
to say the Big Stupid Obvious Maybe Wrong
But They’re TALKING…

Tony Brown,  curmudgeon
(though he despises the word and calls it biased
we know him SO WELL
we are laughing
that one off)  

and didn’t he paint a sort
of race thing on him too
that we can call upon
when convenient — or he can do it
not that we would  

Mostly
Tony Brown is
Imaginary
Poet drudge
Linear trapper
Tony 
Pedestrian 
Used To RockARoll
Brown
what kinda name is that anyway
TONYBROWN one phrase ripped out like a bad poot
Not thought about all that often really
unless our imagination takes
that turn for some reason

We then say
we’re better off for having known
the imaginary man
