Growing up I hated four people.
They were Betty Friedan (feminist),
Earl Warren (corrupt judge), Lyndon Johnson
(assassin), Martin Luther king (pervert).
Today, they are my heroes.
To state the obvious – I’ve changed.
Friedan freed woman from enslavement,
Warren, Johnson, and King freed enslaved African Americans.
Of the four, I believe King was not only the greatest African
American, but our greatest American. His philosophy
Is the key stone holding democracy in place.
J. Edgar Hoover said he was a womanizer,
A communist, and I don’t know what else.
He was not perfect, but he was
What’s up? Why have I changed so much?
I am a man of two minds.
This mind won out,
People should evolve, right?
Picasso was the weirdest artist.
He is now my favorite artist.
People are strange.
Jim Morrison was a druggy scum bag
Whose songs were too long.
Now I proudly show grandchildren
His grave in Paris,
Saying, here lies one of the great ones.
Then I play his songs all day long.
