Leonard Cohen Wrote a Poem Called “Kanye West Is Not Picasso” | Consequence of Sound

This is so Apropos, Leonard being who he was… Perhaps, Kanye needs to defrag his brain, do a little dance with the Green Faerie….

Kanye West is not Picasso
I am Picasso
Kanye West is not Edison
I am Edison
I am Tesla
Jay-Z is not the Dylan of Anything
I am the Dylan of anything
I am the Kanye West of Kanye West
The Kanye West
Of the great bogus shift of bullshit culture
From one boutique to another
I am Tesla
I am his coil
The coil that made electricity soft as a bed
I am the Kanye West Kanye West thinks he is
When he shoves your ass off the stage
I am the real Kanye West
I don’t get around much anymore
I never have
I only come alive after a war
And we have not had it yet

The poem is dated “March 15, 2015”
