where are you now Dr. Gonzo

we need your innate bullshit detector

your slobbering take-no-prisoners eye

for the phony fear merchants

and their utopian dreams of egalitarian mediocrity

we need your .44 Magnum assault

against the veil of moronic single mindedness

self flagellating orgasmic signaling

that burns so pure in the hearts of empty minds

you might prescribe, good doctor

a healthy dose of LSD-25

or a month working on an oil rig in Montana

checking groceries at Safeway or Walmart

followed by a late shift at the 7/11

up all night with a sick calf

then driving your dawn paper route

trying to make ends meet

come back, good doctor

we need a healthy dose of gonzo

before the knives come out
