Three Kings



by G. Jack Urso




jim morrison, jim morrison


where have you gone

who wears your leathers

who sings your songs

who buys you acid

who loads your bongs

jim morrison, jim morrison

where have you gone


jimmy dean, jimmy dean

what has become of you

where have you been

i heard you wiped out

but got away clean

hiding in shadows

on the silver screen

you're the brooding, soul-eyed

androgynous mutant king*


jack kerouac, jack kerouac

where are you at

is this where you stood

is that where you sat

are you still thinking

thoughts you once thunk

are you still wasted

or just stinking drunk

do you still take neal cassady's crap

everyone said you were beat

you said you were be-at
