The American poet Ted Berrigan (1934-1983), sounding a bit like JR in The Eagle's Nest:
It's my conception that it would be a good thing if everybody wrote poetry, in the world, because it seems to me that it's a natural human activity. Just like singing is for the birds. Birds don't sing because they think they're Neil Young, you know; I mean, they sing because that's what birds do.
