Long Hair Seattle

Long hair Seattle
hippies sipping root beer
driven on a caffeine bolt
reading poems in cafes
with libraries that stink of cheese
hippies with holes in their knees
eating a day's rent
or stealing a poet's tent
long hairs running wild
one shaved his head bald
but in the bath got a scald
running fingers over old tattoos
lived a life of a rock-and-roll sailor
like Godsmack or Alice in Chains
grunge music banging at your soul
peanut butter injection
and everyone is groovy on nuts
Pit Bulls line the streets
salivating their hungry smiles
at the hamburger stands
or man, the long hairs of Seattle
is a good life of poetry
tea drinking
and stinking thinking
like Apostle Bobby
reads from a cross world puzzle
with rotten teeth
and thinking he will be Popeye
stealing spinach from the store
but man, can he play the drums
long hair Seattle
