  • Once upon a mind-flight
    Leary with the tripping became weary
    Of the psychedelic travel
    Felt the universe unravel
    Saw the Big Bang coming sooner
    Like a home boy on a nooner
    Landing module on the Lunar
    In the tank a drunken crooner
    Lifted from a Looney tooner
    Daffy in a covered wagon
    Quaffing kool aid by the flagon
    Puffing on a magic dragon
    Quoth Ken Kesey

    Down Fairhaven on the shore
    Merry prankster in the door
    Stands and with all passion present
    Hammers flat the Fertile Crescent
    Dances pagan jig around it
    Lies about the day he found it
    Finds no way to get around it
    Spouting mindless psycho babble
    Feels the universe unravel
    Sees the sawing Big Bang sooner
    Frothy suds sipped from a schooner
    Surviving one more drunken nooner
    Quoth Bukowski
    Drink a beer.

    Still the onslaught keeps on coming
    Summers in the Village slumming
    Buying garments in the shops
    Hurling epithets at cops with
    No regard for limb or life
    Steal a nooner with a wife
    One fine day arrive home early
    Pop the top on Moe and Curly
    Dance beat big bang module tuner
    Sing a ballad like a crooner
    Cancer tropic after Miller
    Hey Joe I am not a killer
    Quoth the Doctor
    You are here.

    Now it’s done and I am finished
    Breaking rules with fiendish glee
    Borrowing from all and sundry
    Certain I shall never see
    A more twisted opening than thee
    Scrawled on walls by fools like me
    Fools whose stroking pens are pressed
    Against the paper’s clean white breast
    Scribbling screeds to pass the time
    Bereft of reason and of sense
    Mainly lacking recompense
    Trippy chippy lines of verse
    With no remorse and empty purse.
