Tuli Kupferberg, '1001 Ways to Beat the Draft'

In 1966, Tuli Kupferberg released the marvelous LP No Deposit / No Return and a long poem called 1001 Ways to Beat the Draft,  written with Robert Bashlow. 1001 Ways to Beat the Draft is one of the great long poems of the New American (and "Beat") poetry --  and perhaps the quintessential 60's anti-war poem, though it is hardly known at all and as far as I know not recognized as a poem.  But it is one and a great one. The full poem (66 pp.) is on-line  via Haathi Trust digital library's anarchism pamphlets.

The poem sits somewhere between Allen Ginsberg's "America" (1956) and Ted Berrigan's "Things to Do on Speed" (1970) and brings to mind Phil Och's classic "Draft Dodger Rag" (YouTube) (c. 1965) and Country Joe and the Fish's "I Feel Like I'm Fixin' To Die Rag" (1969)
