What Would Billy Corgan Think of Me?

Billy Corgan and Walter E.Smithe consult attorneys.

I woke up from a very deep sleep. . .great anxiety!  Gathering my thoughts and the bedclothes, that had been kicked to the floor in physical reaction to what must have been a moderate to mild nightmare, I framed the pieces of unconscious/subconscious images, sounds and patterns in fully conscious awareness that I had not given a thought to Billy Corgan.  I was troubled by this somnolent revelation.

In fact, I had not given Billy Corgan a thought for well over decade.  I listen to WCDPG =90.5 FM in the carand no longer need to cringe and fumble the dial away when WXRT dutifully plays one Billy's nasally screeches.

The last time that I gave Billy Corgan my fullest attention occured around the time that Chicago pulled the plug on the Pumpkins' Grant Park show in 1998 and every bed-wetter with a column whined to the 5th Floor "What about the Pumpkins, Man?  This is Harsh. So, Not Cool!"

Evidently, I am supposed to care and care deeply about Billy Corgan, because his fleshy dome is ubiquitous in Chicago media -print-web-tube.

Nothing for it but to soldier-on!  I am sure that Jesse and Sandy Jackson are not allowing the restless sleep of the previous night keep them from being about the obligations of the day!

My day has been productive and I am fulfilling my obligations contractual, parental, romantic, and theological; nevertheless, I continue to worry that I am not devoting as much thought to Billy Corgan, artist, musician, coffee bartender, salesman, wrestling aficionado, Hair Club For Men Eschewer and friend of Bill Kurtis's old lady as anyone who calls himself a true Chicagoan should.  I am quite sure that Chief Keef's every waking thought is with Billy Corgan.

There are beliefs that can not go ignored - I believe in the Holy Spirit,  the holy catholic church,  the communion of saints,  the forgiveness of sins,  the resurrection of the body,  and the life everlasting;
I believe that only a man and a woman can produce a child through marriage.  I do not believe that at my age I should use hair coloring.  I know that I do not at this time suffer from what is commercially warned as Low T, ED, or MSNBC.  I believe in One God, the Father the Almighty Maker of Heaven and Earth . . .I do believe that I have given Billy Corgan sufficient thought.

I do not know Billy Corgan would agree.  That troubles me some.
