20:20 Vision

Bill Hicks died twenty years ago today. His words still ring true and should be heeded.  I'll be raising a glass no doubt and jotted this down to mark the occasion:

 

Twenty years ago he left the ride; 

Twenty years since young Bill died.

He shared his message and his vision,

At the very heart of his mission.

Truth the foundation, his house of laughter.

Fear not, for what may come after.

Have the courage to make the choice;

Stand up and raise your voice.

It is in this moment, we are all one.

The journey that we have all begun.

 

In this obituary, published in the Guardian in 1994, John Lahr reflects on the US comedian's brand of intellectual anarchy.
