FZ & dope

Allen Ginsberg は、好みじゃないのですが、こんなのを見つけました。

    First Party At Ken Kesey's With Hell's Angels

Cool black night thru redwoods
cars parked outside in shade
behind the gate, stars dim above
the ravine, a fire burning by the side
porch and a few tired souls hunched over
in black leather jackets. In the huge
wooden house, a yellow chandelier
at 3 A.M. the blast of loudspeakers
hi-fi Rolling Stones Ray Charles Beatles
Jumping Joe Jackson and twenty youths
dancing to the vibration thru the floor,
a little weed in the bathroom, girls in scarlet
tights, one muscular smooth skinned man
sweating dancing for hours, beer cans
bent littering the yard, a hanged man
sculpture dangling from a high creek branch,
children sleeping softly in their bedroom bunks.
And 4 police cars parked outside the painted
gate, red lights revolving in the leaves.

December 1965

FZ は、バーバンクの連中、つまり、ワーナー・ブラザーズの連中のことをかばんに楽譜じゃなくて白い粉を入れてる連中だなんて酷評していましたが、William Burroughs、Ginsberg 友親交があったようです。

バロウズの原作によるミュージカルを作ろうとしたんだとか。

中小企業の親父だと最近つくづく感じます。

Dope と CIA をテーマにしたギンズバーグの詩もあります。

       CIA Dope Calypso

In nineteen hundred forty-nine
China was won by Mao Tse-tung
Chiang Kai-shek's army ran away
They were waiting there in Thailand yesterday

Supported by the CIA
Pushing junk down Thailand way


First they stole from the Meo Tribes
Up in the hills they started taking bribes
Then they sent their soldiers up to Shan
Collecting opium to send to The Man

Pushing junk in Bangkok yesterday
Supported by the CIA


Brought their jam on mule trains down
To Chiang Rai that's a railroad town
Sold it next to the police chief brain
He took it to town on the choochoo train

Trafficking dope to Bangkok all day
Supported by the CIA


The policeman's name was Mr. Phao
He peddled dope grand scale and how
Chief of border customs paid
By Central Intelligence's U.S. A.I.D.

The whole operation, Newspapers say
Supported by the CIA


He got so sloppy & peddled so loose
He busted himself & cooked his own goose
Took the reward for an opium load
Seizing his own haul which same he resold

Big time pusher for a decade turned grey
Working for the CIA


Touby Lyfong he worked for the French
A big fat man liked to dine & wench
Prince of the Meos he grew black mud
Till opium flowed through the land like a flood

Communists came and chased the French away
So Touby took a job with the CIA


The whole operation fell in to chaos
Till U.S. Intelligence came into Laos
I'll tell you no lie I'm a true American
Our big pusher there was Phoumi Nosovan

All them Princes in a power play
But Phoumi was the man for the CIA


And his best friend General Vang Pao
Ran the Meo army like a sacred cow
Helicopter smugglers filled Long Cheng's bars
In Xieng Quang province on the Plain of Jars

It started in secret they were fighting yesterday
Clandestine secret army of the CIA


All through the Sixties the Dope flew free
Thru Tan Son Nhut Saigon to Marshal Ky
Air America followed through
Transporting confiture for President Thieu

All these Dealers were decades and yesterday
The Indochinese mob of the U.S. CIA


Operation Haylift Offisir Wm. Colby
Saw Marshal Ky fly opium Mr. Mustard told me
Indochina desk he was Chief of Dirty Tricks
"Hitchhiking" with dope pushers was how he got his fix

Ken Kesey とLSD、Grateful Dead、CIA にPhillip K. Dick か・・・

FZは、LSDとCIAの関係、ドラッグしようを公然と認め全米を巡業しているヒッピー・バンドとCIAの関わりの可能性にもインタヴューで触れてましたが・・・まあ、ちょっと考えすぎかなと。

葉っぱと税金についての詩です。Ray Lucero のいうのはもっともな部分もあるかな?!

     MARIJUANA (Quatrain)

Herb that opens up ones mind
Feds can’t tax, so deem illegal
Those that grow get confined
Perhaps time to make it legal

私は、マリファナを合法化すべきだとは考えませんが、ドラッグとしての意味においてはたいした違いのない、アルコールとタバコについては、課税を条件に合法とされているのは事実ですからね。
