I don't really read poetry for "jokes"
Unless I'm reading Shel Silverstein or something like that. But the humor in Corso's stuff seems pretty smarmy. He mostly just comes off as contrived and gimmicky. Yes, Ginsberg is pompous and as I mentioned he's often long winded but he's also capable of occasionally delivering some truly great lines- Corso doesn't have that ability IMO. And Ginsberg's intelligence generally shines through and keeps me engaged even when he's not entirely succeeding as a poet- again, this isn't something Corso seems capable of (but then, Ginsberg strikes me as being exceptionally intelligent and insightful, if also a bit naive at times).
