Excerpt from flipflap
flip, May 1972
Dear FLIP,
He was a jolly fellow,
A fun-loving guy;
Sort of timid,
So why? Why?
He was so young
And handsome and shy;
He loved people,
So why? Why?
He made people wonder,
Made them happy and sad,
He made people laugh and cry,
So why? Why?
He was against hatred,
Against pollution of
Land, water and sky;
So why? Why?
You said you loved him,
You said you cared:
Well, so did I,
So why? Why?
God knows,
God knows,
Will he tell us why,
Why Pete had to die?
--Toni, Lincoln, Nebr.
