The Status Q... Copkiller #1 (1968) (1 Viewer)

Here are scans of Copkiller #1 (New Orleans, 1968) featuring the uncollected poem The Status Q For Me And Yew... This mag was edited by Darlene Fife and Robert Head who went on to publish NOLA Express which ran Bukowski's NOTES OF A DIRTY OLD MAN column...

my question is with the last line. "Don't let anybody ever find that it is worth the gamble to walk away from unhappy places." It doesn't seem like a straight line, there's something melodramatic in there, a clear hint at fear petrifying man from escaping. It strikes me as infantile.
