Oration at Rocky Flats: 1980
 
When the bombs fall
I'm gonna get my ass in a folding chair
on the Main Street of Heaven.
 
Main Street's gonna be decked out in blonde bunting
because blonde is the color of the general's love
and the whole world's gonna get a big purple heart.
 
On that final Memorial Day
French women will cry tears of joy
from the alleys of Heaven      
when the humans come marching home again. Hurrah! Hurrah!
 
And the mother of Heaven will be working overtime
giving birth to the newly dead
as the world parades through her liberation vulva.
 
Laughter will spill from the wars of history
and every laugh will fill the streets with happy tears.
 
There are no coins in Heaven
and the spirit of genius will be folded away
under the tongue of a brilliant gorilla.
 
Mercy will be a vaudeville joke and we don't need love in Heaven.
 
Compassion, kindness and honesty
will be antique automobiles in the parade.
 
We're gonna take it to the streets of Heaven
and everything's gonna be alright!
 
When the bombs fall
the lion's tooth will brim with bird breath
and the warrior's cock will blossom with flowers
and Gandhi's heart will be a flaming lion.
 
We're gonna take it to the streets of Heaven
and everything's gonna be alright!
 
When the bombs fall
the mouth of Hell will eat itself clean
and the smile of Satan will be the shore
of a blessed ocean and the laughing waves
will cough up the hearts of martyrs and tyrants too
as the crowds cheer Jesus giving Satan
a big wet kiss and slapping his old pal on the back.
 
Satan is a stunt man in Heaven!
 
The falling bombs are the eggs of Venus descending
and each of us will be maddened sperm on the make
and the black night of history
will fill our frightened ears with blessing
and will unite the bright light of matter shattering energy
with our frowning ignorant broken mouthed tears
and our nighttime heart busted misery tales
will be a laughter from the kind bomb
in a mask of terror.
 
And we're gonna take our naked down the streets of Heaven!
And we're gonna make it naked down the streets of Heaven!
And we're gonna take it naked to the streets of Heaven!
And everything's gonna be alright!
