POETIC
BEBOP FOR LATTER-DAY BEATNIKS
AND OTHER SUNDRY SUBTERRANEANS

Pass The Bongos, Ginsberg,
as this scrapple from my Apple
takes a whack at Kerouac,
and the Hip Hipster of Hippness
hipply hip you unhip lames
to what it truly is to be hip to the
very hip hippness of that which is truly hip:

To be hip is to embrace that which is hip
based purely on its hippness
rather than merely because
it is hip for a hipster
to be hip.

Hip is the essence
of that which is hip.
Therefore, the hip
don’t Be hip, they Are hip.
Thus, a true hipster is hip
to the very hip fact that hippness
is hip in its own hip regard,
and not merely hip
for those unhip
who would be hip
simply to embrace the hippness
of what they think is hip
for the sole unhip purpose
of being hip to what's hip,
you dig?

So, to a very hip extent,
hip is the intrinsic hippness
of that which is actually hip.
Therefore, one cannot
be hip without being hip
to the fundamentally hip fact
that it is unquestionably
unhip to try to
become hip, or be hip--
since an effort to be hip
is the exceedingly
unhip antithesis of that which
is hip within the realm of hipness itself.

Thus, in the hippest
of the most glibly hip fashion,
allow the Hip Hipster of Hippness
to hereby hipply hip you to
the inescapably hip fact
that so hipply follows:

To Be Hip Ain’t Hip.
Thus, to be hip, or not to be hip
is definitely not the question.
There is no question
about what is hip.
Hip Simply Is . . .
you hip?
