Night of the Scorpion & Two Scavengers in a Truck, Two Beautiful People in
The poem Two Scavengers in a Truck, Two Beautiful People in a Mercedes
is a descriptive poem where the poet (Lawrence Ferlinghetti) observes
two garbage men in San Francisco and two well-paid people in a
Mercedes. The poet's observation is really about the way the garbage
men look at the well-paid people and the way the rich people look at
the garbage men when waiting at the traffic lights. This poem is about
two garbage men and two posh office people in the Mercedes who stop at
the same traffic light at the same time on the same day.
The main reason I enjoyed this poem was because of the description of
each person in the poem. One description I really liked was the
description of the two people in the Mercedes, '' The man in the hip
three-piece linen suit with shoulder-length blond hair & sunglasses
The young blond women so casually coifed with a short skirt and
colored stockings on the way to his architect's office '' this is the
best description in the poem because it tells us that the man is going
to work and it is clear that the man as a well paid job because he has
an expensive car and an expensive suit.
This poem is also set out in a strange way because it hasn't got any
punctuation and the way of its layout is in a different style. I think
this style gives the poem an effect because the layout is easier to
understand and it makes the poem look as if the poem would be good to
The poem Night of the Scorpion is about something...
