OBIT FOR HUNTER

HUNTER S.THOMPSON

[1937-2005]

Loathsome Secrets…
Of a Star-Crossed Child…
In the Final Days…
Of the American Century…

Whore that he was…
That Hunter S.Thompson…
For having the last laugh…
Son-of-a-bitch…
Bowing out like that…
Just as the world ignites…

Kapow!

“So long and Mahalo…”
Gonzoid prophet…
Subversive junkie…
Hedonist…
Sweet Jesus…
He was God, okay…

Horse-syringes, loaded shotguns, cans of Mace…
And a crazy leer in his eye…

Fear & Loathing…
Every step of the way for this cowboy…
Daily epiphany…
On tap from the barrel of a vengeful God…
In a Stetson…

“A howling, violence freak…”
Fuelled by LSD, ether, alcohol…
And…
Suicidal tendency…

Let’s be honest, here…
dammit…
Anyone prepared to call…
dear Mr President a “Whore Beast,” honey…
Deserves deification in my book…

Honorific doctor…
Always…
Divinity surfing the waves of the Apocalypse…
Red, white and blue…
You betcha…

His Partner-in-Swine…
Ralph Steadman…
48-hours-after-hearing-of-his-co-conspirators departure:

“Since it happened my feet haven’t touched the ground. It’s like I can still speak to Hunter beyond the grave. Like he is saying, ‘Don’t fuck up on this one, Ralph! Tell it like you knew it, but don’t bad mouth me!! You always knew I was going to do it, so it wasn’t ‘if’ but ‘when’. It was my call Ralph and now you will have to deal with the flood. Apres moi, Ralph – the deluge!!

“Did you think it was going to be an easy ride? You knew what you were doing when you brought a ticket. You were there most of the time, but towards the end you couldn’t handle the heat, but you made the role of Honor by the skin of your teeth. So long Ralph, and thanks for the laughs. And remember – The Crazy Never Die! Look after Anita.”

HST…
Free-basin’ the highway of life…
Snorting it…
Shooting it…
Any which fucking way…

Whilst humanity hits global-meltdown…
The Duke decides to cash in his post-millennial chips…
Bitch, that….

He was, after all…
The bad-ass muther…
Who reportedly spat at Richard M.Nixon…
“Go get ‘em, Dick. Throw the bomb! Fifty years more of the Thousand year Reich!”

God I’m gonna miss him…
Trail-blazing fucker…

    given the nature and methods of expression of the dear departed this was in many ways the best possible way to address that departure. Thanks Kable!
