New York Inflated Mind

Dateline New York, the Tour Continues
Life and death not withstanding
The band found itself before a sold out crowd
Due to some corporate conspiracy
The crowd had been sold tickets to see
The Secret Machines
Instead, they saw us
Were they disappointed?
We didn’t stop to ask
We played hard
And ran faster
After the show
Panting to catch our breath
The news reached us
Doctor Hunter S. Thompson
Had punctuated his last submission
By blowing up his own head
Monkey Boy took this particularly hard
And proceeded to inflate his head
With helium and tequila
Then we floated him up and down
The streets of New York
Our own little Macy’s Cavalcade
In honor of Doctor Gonzo
Monkey Boy got high
And we stomped terra

“The music business is a cruel shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There’s also a negative side.”
-- Hunter S Thompson 1937--2005
He was a blogger before there were blogs.
