Artificial Life -Author Demitri Tyler

Artificial Life


Go to school

to get a job

get a job then

go to work for


Food clothes

and shelter

material things

work that job day


After day for the

majority of the day

for the majority of

your life week to


Week check to check

put the pennies away

for rainy days for

hungry days for


Golden days that may

never be you don’t like

your jobs too much like


A job how jobs chain the

free why are jobs so job

laced with atrophy need

more time for you need


More time for me not to

live their dream not to

build their dream but to

do the things we were

meant to be

About the Author

Writer, orator and activist, Demitri the poet with the Greek name that if translated would read “dedicated to, follower of Mother Earth,” is a rising voice out of San Francisco planting words of wisdom as if seeds beneath the flesh. His talents as a rapper formed his early years gaining him recognition as mc to watch in underground circles with performances at the Upper Room the cities hottest poetry/rap venue at the time as well as his activism in and around the community and state college campuses.

Family tragedy and the realities of life caused this man to hang up his music career and vanish for over ten years but it was time well spent for out of the darkness has emerged a streaking comet who has made the transition from rap to poetry look seamless.
