Mourning for the Mutineer

[Warning: sentimental tripe ahead]

We first met him as the Excitable Boy, singing Roland’s Song.

We appreciated his polical praise of Jimmy Carter’s Envoy.

Did we ever decide whether cynicism or romanticism won in ‘The Block’ or ‘Jeannie Needs a Shooter’?

Damn, the man made cattle disease and organic solvents rock.

Yeah, he was my mutineer, while I ran just a little too far in front of the bulls.

I’m going to miss Warren Zevon like a friend.

Who now will call for lawyers, guns and money?

We will, but only to protect our property.

Oh, hell.

We grew up.
