Charmed Columbia University.
Life endlessly recorded.
Nurturing the Beat.
Generation to generation.
Art poetry philosophy.
Godfather to free hippie verse.
Conga drum music.
Soothing psyche and the soul.
Break through to the other side.
Mining winding mind-bending byways.
Peace and love.
Telling unvarnished history.
Author of the poem “America”
with its line 33, which reads:
“I smoke marijuana every chance I get.”
Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997), Founder of the Jack Kerouac School
of Disembodied Poetics at Naropa University.
