portrait of a cool cat on mars

an alien beatnik behind venusian blinds
hoists a medallion drunk on overdrive-

before the paisley Nehru, a turtleneck.
before the beads, black berets and finger snaps.
before the struggle with arms akimbo.

(Kum Ba Ya, my sweet lord, Kum Ba Ya)

apres les deluge: bongo, bongo, bongo.

Delightful piece and amusing. :) All the b's make the "cool cat on mars" bounce.

this is great, Gerry!
love it when some witty and deep thoughts are coated with playfulness and humor...
this was a psycho-sociological study of such people... seems their rejection remains on the surface... like their clothes...

especially loved 'venusian blinds'
it was more than a play on venetian blinds... much more!

how masterly done!
namaste!
