golden gate park blues

by wiggly jones, "the little hippie boy"

say goodbye to gypsy dave
long since sunk beneath the wave
as time’s pitiless rush
turns everything to mush

sunshine - white rabbit - blue star -
who knows where they are?
enlightenment they craved
but they could not be saved

brad with his encyclopedia of drugs
and mary with her indiscriminate hugs
albert with his cut down bike
and rudy who nobody really liked

terry who sold flowers in the mission
and leroy who studied the human condition
and jenny with the bracelets on her arms
who was always talking about starting a farm

they came and went so fast
because life is not built to last
and all blur into each other
that’s just how it is, brother

memories get twisted
so maybe they never all really existed
but as my brain cells drift away
i see them all as bright as day
