The hippy king

 

To me, you are the king of hippies
matching all the bum ideals
of freedom without limits,
any self-indulgence but within control,
heroic continuity in underground democracy
against autocracy, bureaucracy and all totalitarianism
and humble service at the same time
to all humankind in careful modesty,
while in private your flamboyant intellectual brilliance
and extravagance are more than boundless.
Let me never lose your generosity,
so that I always when in moments of dark moods and dire straits
may save my spirit by enriching it with yours
as the most permanent reliable example of constructiveness
that I could ever find among humanity.
