Buddha On Junk

Posted to WritersAndGenres




"Buddha? A notorious metabolic junky... Makes
his own you dig. In India, where they got no sense of
time, The Man is often a month late.... 'Now let me
see, is that the second or the third monsoon? I got like
a meet in Ketchupore about more or less.'
"And all them junkies sitting around in the lotus
posture spitting on the ground and waiting on The Man.
"So Buddha says: 'I don't hafta take this sound. I'll
by God metabolize my own junk.'
"'Man, you can't do that. The Revenooers will swarm
all over you.'
"'Over me they won't swarm. I gotta gimmick, see?
I'm a fuckin Holy Man as of right now.'
"'Jeez, boss, what an angle.'
