Hippiecrits by Mark Antony Rossi

A hopped-up hippie
told me too much beef
will give me colon cancer.

I replied “once you quit smoking
Pot and Parliament
then you can lecture me
on clean living.

That SOB
ran for Congress
Got arrested for nuke protests
And became a vegetarian.

Good advice is hard to take.
