“Hickory, Dickory, Kerouac,” Richard Gehman, 1959

“Hickory, Dickory, Kerouac,” Richard Gehman, 1959 — (short short) The mouse is a cat, and he digs it all until he realizes that “pot was no good, pan was no good, clock was just as bad.”  Now he is a rich trustee of the First National Corn Crib.

Comments: Read in Best of the Best. Also as by Martin Scott. Themes of counter-culture, capitalism, drugs, conformity.

Author: Wikipedia: “Richard Boyd Gehman (May 20, 1921 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania- May 12, 1972) was a prolific American author of more than 3,000 magazine articles (including over 400 features), five novels and fifteen nonfiction books. Gehman also wrote under many different pen names, including Meghan Richards, Frederick Christian, Martin Scott, Michael Robinson and F.C. Uffelman.”
