Occult fish-rats were in short supply
In that cottage by the Lake-shore where
Jenny, a Californian girl with toothache,
In 1969, give-or-take, was advised to drink
Fortified wine. Fortified by C16H16N2O2
This Lysergic acid had been manufactured
In Palo Alto and brought over to England,
People did those sort of things then inspired
By Timothy Leary and the whole anti-Psychiatry
Movement and One Flew Over published in 1962
Kesey etc. Anyway we duly did, share the homeopathy
And I toddled off to take Jen to the emergency
Dentist who was a very nice Anglolan chap
A supporter of the Movimento Popular de Libertação de Angola
We talked about the war against the Portuguese and Unita
Which fortunately I knew something about. Jen kept rigidly quiet:
Whilst I made a complete, but unscientific, study of the spiders from Mars
Which a certain south London guy, David Jones, was later to notice
Under similar circumstances or not, I'm not so sure.. Since then the world has
Remained very much the same.
Just me being a touch semi-detached and more than a little open-minded. .
There's a time and place for everything, as they say......
