lyrics

Senators, coax these goat meat
Magistrates past the gates.
Terms and disbursements and servants await.
Please don’t say “No”.
Let them say
“If you’d found me wrapping in cellophane
Lips and limbs loosely intruding on trade croupiers,
I’d not feel so led astray.”

Précis, policy, penalties posed.
Coding the calls they keep telling me:
“The one armed man complains and feigns a faux doe-see-doe.”
Macy’s…Maybe we’ve a registry.
Pulsing, appalled, they keep telling me:
“The one armed man complains and feigns a faux doe-see-doe.”

Seven years hence, here, heads bent
Bursting and biliously baiting,
Effete and a facsimile.
Please don’t take “No”.
Let us pray:
“Is not our poor Sun spitting rays upon
Mainlands and colonies and setting on our halcyon days?”
These Brits don’t change.
They never change!

Paste won’t make grace slow.
Man alive!! I’m terrified!! This science has a pace to prove!!
Send me a postcard, a quickening thought, for tying a wasp in a knot
And I’ll lasso a l’oiseau for you.
For shame that mortal hand sets ayes to build and brace the post-haste
Symme-try as I might my elect is all “cheval/chevaux”.
And golden it seems, these cold calluses grow!
