Read a poem referenced in Illuminatus!

From Appendix Nun at the end of the Illuminatus! trilogy: "LORD OMAR KHAYAM RAVENHURST. An imaginary Chaoist philosopher invented by Mr. Kerry Thornley of Atlanta, Georgia. Mr. Thornley was a friend of Lee Harvey Oswald's, was accused of complicity in the John Kennedy assassination by District Attorney Jim Garrison, and is the author of llluminati Lady, an endless epic poem which you really ought to read."

Illuminati Lady has not been available except in an obscure 1960s zine -- until now! Adam Gorightly has unearthed it from the Discordian Archives, so you can read it now.
