War on the Homefront

Late 60's and
I popped a tab
Of Purple Haze...
I worked the front desk
At a B-grade hotel --
A cab driver and a hooker
Had an altercation.
I called the police,
But the hooker fled
Before their arrival.
She called, threatening
My life --
And a passing car
Left bullet holes
In the glass doorway.
Talk about a bum trip:
I saw trails for a
Thousand years.
