Fear and Loathing

by STEW ALBERT

Did Hunter know his time was over?
How could he exaggerate
the venality of George Bush?
while drifting over circus tent surrealism
of screwball entertaining insight
cause Dubya’s his own caricature
who wears lies
without disguise.
with painful vibrations of loss
Gonzo once proclaimed,
"I miss Nixon."
