Gonzo Poem

Stay Calm, Stay Calm

Voltaire shall rise from his

grave soon.  And Horatio Alger

is in hell where he belongs.

Just stay calm, hide the

stash, have some wine

And don’t look anyone in the eye.

These people know you’re up to something,

and when you don’t

speak their language it’s a dead giveaway.

Just walk fast, keep pick pockets

away, and mind your p’s and q’s.

And for the love of god  don’t

drink so much.  It might be

legal in Europe, but good lord

their are enough empty bottles

to make Hemingway call you a


Just stay calm, stay calm
