JOHN SINCLAIR AND HIS BLUES SCHOLARS – FAT BOY

for Charles Moore

There is something
about the American
mind
set on de-
struction, re-
lent-
less, un-
penitent,
eager to bomb
There is the hatred
that fuels the A-
merican mind,
the shriveled-up
heart
the heartless
always ready
to kill
& maim
brutal
with the urge
to crush & destroy
This is where
they built Fat Man, Mr. U-
235
& they sent
Fat Man
& Little Boy
to Japan
to level Hiroshima
& Nagasaki
They love Fat Boy
they feed him the sweets
of their hearts
singing their filthy songs
into Fat Boy’s u-
ranium ears
& let the rest of us
eat the shit
of their hatred
of anything
or anyone
that is not them
Ah! Fat Boy
so round & ugly
so full of hate
stuffed
with the dead spirits
of the Americans
blinded
& lost
in the deserts of Iraq

John Sinclair Radio Show 842 – Natural From Our Hearts

Episode 842 is coming from Radio Free Amsterdam’s Detroit headquarters in the Cass Corridor with the third of four consecutive programs presenting the entire box set of my elongated blues work in verse, Fattening Frogs For Snakes, as recorded with four different ensembles in four different studios between 2001 and 2010. The box set is about to be issued in April by Jared Kowal at Jett Plastic Recordings in Detroit and I’m taking this opportunity while still recovering from a broken right shoulder to make four more programs without a microphone, of which this is the third, produced by Justin Showah at Travelers Rest Studio in Oxford MS in 2007 with Lightning Malcolm on guitar; Justin Showah on bass, Wallace Lester on drums, and the late great Jim Dickenson on keyboards.
