Flower Power

This was written by Ken Kesey, in the "Tools From My Chest" section of Kesey's Garage Sale:

All our symbols rust and fall; our flags fray; our banners are ripped off by Seville Row; our slogans are snapped up for Coca-Cola commercials. . . Only the flower has survived, just as potent as the first time we put a jonquil in a pop bottle for the third grade teacher. Flower children change but the effect of the tool that gave them their name remains the same. How about more flower adults?
