Allen Ginsberg - In Society lyrics
I walked into the cocktail party
room and found three or four queers
talking together in queertalk.
I tried to be friendly but heard
myself talking to one in hiptalk.
"I'm glad to see you," he said, and
looked away. "Hmn," I mused. The room
was small and had a double-decker
bed in it, and cooking apparatus:
icebox, cabinet, toasters, stove;
the hosts seemed to live with room
enough only for cooking and sleeping.
My remark on this score was under-
stood but not appreciated. I was
offered refreshments, which I accepted.
I ate a sandwich of pure meat; an

enormous sandwich of human flesh,
I noticed, while I was chewing on it,
it also included a dirty a**hole.
More company came, including a
fluffy female who looked like
a princess. She glared at me and
said immediately: "I don't like you."
turned her head away, and refused
to be introduced. I said, "What!"
in outrage. "Why you sh**-faced fool!"
This got everybody's attention.
"Why you narcissistic b**h! How
can you decide when you don't even
know me," I continued in a violent
and messianic voice, inspired at
last, dominating the whole room.
