Eulogy: Brisco County Jr.

It must be a morning for odd poetry. When I found out today that one of my all-time favorite TV shows, The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr., will be available on DVD on June 18 (preordered!), I had to go look up the Eulogy that Timothy Leary gave at a funeral in one episode. It was composed entirely of random Beatles lyrics. I finally found it lurking in an old newsgroup:

    When I find myself in times of trouble, I say 'boy, you gotta carry that weight.
    I am he, you are he, you are me, we are all together, speaking words of wisdom.
    Come together, right now.
You could do worse for a eulogy I suppose.
