William Burroughs - Advice for Young People

"If you are doing business with a religious son-of-a-bitch, get it in writing. Because his word isn't worth shit, not with the Good Lord telling him how to fuck you on the deal."

Burroughs and I were paid at the same per-word rate for our contributions to "Three Fisted Tales of "Bob" / Short Stories in the SubGenius Mythos" (New York: Simon & Schuster, 1990). Make of that what you will!



Bells softly ring beneath their steeple
They're selling souls and they're dealing people
And the choirs sing, the coyotes laugh
And quietly they'll take everything you have

You can't trust em'
Their souls are lost. They keep taking Jesus back off of the cross
Lightning won't strike 'em and the cops won't bust 'em
And all I know, all I know, is you can't trust 'em
