I have noticed
that during
the current

heat wave,
a number
of people

have resorted
to going

in the office.
If you're
going to walk

the office
like a hippy

at least put
some flowers
in your hair,

it'll brighten
the place up
a little.

You once stood for something.
When they told you "NO"
you stood like a black-eyed-susan.
like the tao.
but when they beat you, betrayed you,
hogtied and pepper sprayed you,
you got angry.
You did things that soiled your good name.
I guess you just should have learned to take it,
like the tao.
like the tao, and wait.
like the tao and let the waters rise.
like the tao and overcome.
the weak overcome the tyranny of man with numbers.
as each drop of water equally starts the flood.
like each living being that has ever thought
"I will overcome."
I will overcome.

Stop the fighting,
Stop the hatred,
Find peace in
before its too late,
before you are too
old to get off your
ass and take a walk.

I looked up into the sky
And I saw
In helicopters
And I knew
This was the day I trained for....

Maybe they got it right
the first time,
Love the earth more than
Kiss the rain as it kisses
the leaves,
Savor the sunlight when it
lights the sky,
Nourish the soul with
natural things,
But above all love life
with bare feet.


Glances only serve as the flash and your stare
holds the entire motion picture of what
could have been a future.
Your heart seeks ending supply of
barren caves, kicking screaming
to be loved yet neither side is really
Concocted from the decades past
more scripting, stripping down another pole
wriggling, wading about like maniacal
headless, egg busting junkie.
They call it a revolution or a new tab
with in the big book of life I'm just
gonna stand here watch it tick by
fighting against your silly plight.

Darwin at Work
where you send
the boys with the best eyesight
out to be
in wars

A bunch of naked hippies on the beach

Remember that time
at the beach.
You were the first one
with your clothes off.
I think you were already
a little drunk
but you would have
stripped down
You never had anything to hide.

Because of you
I had the strength to stand
bare-breasted and unafraid
to all of the Atlantic Ocean
and sing about sunshine and having life.
You gave a number of people
the courage to take their shells off that night.
A bunch of naked hippies on the beach
like a flock of seagulls with a little
more heart.
We thought we could change
the world back then,
and I guess we still can.

A van load of hippies

Straight out of prison
Wondering what I've been missing
Right out of the gates I stuck out my thumb

A van load of hippies
All from Mississippi
Stoped and asked, hey dude...what's going on

I'm here for adventure
Well hop in then Mister
Adventure is what we're all about

Now where we're all going
There's no way of knowing
A van of hippies and parolee freshly let out

We ended up in Disney
Me and all of the hippies
Where we had caboodles of fun

We met Mickey and he saw it
When I lifted his wallet
Now we're in the Magic Kingdom all on the run

We split in different directions
To throw off detection
It's A Small World is where I made my mistake

With that song stuck in my head
It's a fate worse than death
Prison now sounds like a wonderful place

We rendezvoused in
The Pirate's Of The Caribbean
Where soon after, in came the law

We all jumped from our boats
Splashing around in the moat
And had ourselves a good old fashioned pirate brawl

We soon made our escape
Out of exit door 88
Finding ourselves in Frontier Land at night

Where in the middle of the street
Were Mickey, Donald, and Goofy
All with guns strapped to their sides

We ran into a shop
And bought guns on the spot
All with Mickey's money...he's a mouse of a man

Mickey squeeks we're going to ruff you up
As Goofy holds up the cuffs
And Donald says something we can't understand

We had a shoot out
With cap guns no doubt
After all Disney runs a safe place

Ran out of caps in our guns
Which stopped our lives on the run
The wrath of Mickey we all now would face

After justice's hammer
I'm now back in the slammer
This time I made my own prison bed

Now I cry every day
What more can I say
With It's A Small World still stuck in my head
