Judy in Disguise


There she stood,
outside the Capitol Building
recently bombed and blasted
by the Weather Underground.

Old news footage in a documentary
at a 1972 press conference proclaiming
we didn't do it! - but we dug it.

Falsely accused of a crime -
a crime we didn't commit
yet were committed too.

She looked so cute in her painted face,
the essential hippie chick of yesteryear
with flashing eyes looking into the future -
which is today.

And now with silver hair and echoing eyes
always walking next to the history of herself
twice as good for the cost of time.
