Addict Poem by George Hunter
Today I woke up at 6-2-0
And started by doing a line of blow.
This made me see things that are not so
Like aliens flying a U F O.
Figured I'd better switch my meds
So I took a handfull of pills called Reds.
This made me feel plenty all reet
So I doffed my clothes and ran up the street.
A lady complained that I was scaring her kid
So I went back inside my house and hid.
Later I was feeling more hip
So I took LSD and went on a trip.
That didn't turn out well and I ended up in
St. Elizabeth's Hospital's looney bin.
Gave me a lobotomy and some electric shocks
Now I can't even put on my socks.
Finally escaped, went to Tijuana
And scored a big bag of marijuana.
Smoked that weed til it came outta my ears
And I began losing all of my fears.
Then I started drinking to maintain my high
And got arrested on a DUI.
Didn't even try to get some bail
‘Cause you can get good drugs when you're in jail.
So give up on me, I'm having my fun
Once an addict, always one!
