the start of it all

Posted to Tribute to Ken Kesey

as a literary talent you were huge
as a pioneer you were a hero
as a person you were unlike any other
you hung with neil, garcia, and mountain girl
who else can say that?
had a child named sunshine and a dozen other children that followed your lead.
like a piper you still lead.
you lead me. through mexico, through the adventures of your talented crazy friends
Merry Pranksters, and flagged jumpsuites
Through a decade that I always wanted to live in
so shine on father of a revolution
someone we can't forget - through city lights and SF nights
