Goodbye Gonzo

Goodbye Gonzo

A Poem by Thomas W Case
"

For Hunter S. Thompson

"
Gonzo goes out
with a 45 blast.
He was kicking a*s in Aspen,
we knew it wouldn't last.
The rambling, gambling
man of journalism
put Fear and Loathing on
the map,
but in the end,
he couldn't stay.
It's bat country.

I miss Hunter. I worked as a student journalist in (community) college, he was something of a personal hero. At least he went out on his own terms, he looked pretty rough in interviews by the end.

He fought the good fight, I guess. It is hard to survive in a tough country where people are bat crazy.
We can all learn a lesson from Gonzo.
At least he was not a Bozoo

You are welcome exactly.


I guess you don't have to know him, or have personally been there to appreciate Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas .. and I reckon Gonzo was just playing possum ..
