"I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me."
Hunter S. Thompson

While one does Trip…


While trippin’ what will one see?

While trippin’ I became one with the sea,

While trippin’ my mind was full of color,

While trippin’ I became part of the wall of my cellar…


While trippin’ what is reality?

While trippin’ I witnessed my own mortality,

While trippin’ I saw more hospitality,

While trippin’ I did so without any formality…


While trippin’ life was quite good,

While trippin’ of everything I understood,

While trippin’ I could have eaten wood,

While trippin’ I rarely did what I should…


While trippin’ things did occur that I did not comprehend,

While trippin’ I found that I could with others make amends,

While trippin I could to the heavens and further ascend,

While trippin’ I did smoke a special blend,

While trippin’ thank the gods for my very best friend…
