What Would Abbie Hoffman Do?

by John Kendall Hawkins
.

He'd commandeer a blackhawk

full of pallets of hard cold indifferent cash

just back from a tour of rack or ran or vietghan

and let it rain down rain, rain, rain

down on the masses of the inner city burbs

be like his old wall street balcony days

pork snorklers in the trough below wilding for dollar bills

(not all of them were counterfeit)

a hard cash rain is gonna fall

full-time job, great pay, lots of bennies

raking in the Leaves of Cash, literally, as old Walt

might say, body gone 'lectric, singing like Jimi
