Laying aside his hat,
He flung his carcass to the ground
Swanly saying:

                    It took so long to get here
                    I forgot I was coming.

And later on the great redoubt,
Surrounded by pantyloons descending
He said:

                    Double-dawg dare ye
                    Double-dawg dare ye.

How did it go?

                    Mighty slow.
                    Mighty slow.


(Paris — 1995)
