My LJIdol piece this week was partially inspired by the poem that is below the cut, which is one of my all-time favorites.  The conceit is that the writer is Archy, a cockroach who can read and write and has found a manual typewriter.  He creates his poems by jumping on the keys headfirst, and since he can only hit one key at a time there is no punctuation or capitalization.  But in case anyone is curious, and just because it is one of my favorites, I wanted to share.  Enjoy.
