Born on July 14th, Woody Guthrie was an American Folk Music singer-songwriter and social activist. He inspired many musicians, most notably Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen.
Woody wrote hundreds of songs and regrettably died far too young at the age of 55 in 1967. Here is today’s haiku:
Woody Had Hope
No dust bowl could stop
his hillbilly musical
social justice march
