Sometime during eternity some guys show up and one of them who shows up real late

is a kind of carpenter from some square-type place like Galilee and he starts wailing and claiming he is hep to who made heaven and earth and that the cat who really laid it on us is his Dad

And moreover he adds It's all writ down on some scroll-type parchments which some henchmen leave lying around the Dead Sea somewheres a long time ago and which you won't even find for a coupla thousand years or so or at least for ninteen hundred and fortyseven of them to be exact and even then nobody really believes them or me for that matter

You're hot they tell him

And they cool him

They stretch him on the Tree to cool And everybody after that is always making models of this Tree with Him hung up and always crooning His name and calling Him to come down and sit in on their combo as if he is THE king cat who's got to blow or they can't quite make it

Only he don't come down from His Tree

Him just hang there on His Tree looking real Petered out and real cool and also according to a roundup of late world news from the usual unreliable sources real dead

Well, that didn’t format the way I intended.

I’m a fan, OP. He helped map our desires.

After 101 years I've finally heard of him. I hope that he had a good life and an even better after-life!

Definitely the last of that generation of beat poets and writers. And another SF institution gone.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
