William Burroughs … Come on Back!

William …
we need you now,
come on back,

soft-shoe-shuffle on back,
mordantly wander
on back,
undertaker-drag
on back,

comment on the conventions,
acidly notice things,
flagrantly …
destroy things,

whilst muttering mutations,
just plain cut-the-rug
right out
from under,

the creationists,
the snake-handlers,
the dumb-fuck religionists,
the paranoid drug czars,
the oh so ignorant 
blonde talking heads,
that son of a bitch
Zimmerman,

The war is still being fought,
and Uncle Bill …
We need you!
