To market, to market
To buy a cracked egg…
Make a slave’s wage.
Read all about it!
Did you hear the news?
The town crier shouted:
“She bears little resemblance to me,
This snazzy bushwhacker,
Bedazzled in topaz;
Tokin’ up peridot,
Can’t do the splits to save my life!”
Swigging cotton wires
From snaggletoothed smiles…
All the while,
Fattening up in the fryer.
But derogatory inflammation
Don’t bode well with docile subordination.
Whose spell spins yarn brighter than gold?
(Who burned the hasty pudding?)
Ask about the joint she rolled.
Tell you what:
Little do I care to know the details;
Nor the ins and outs
Thrust between velvet rapiers
(One size does not fit all).
Masquerades as operatic tragedy.
It bores the hell out of me.
Ain’t my thing,
I’ll stick to spaghetti Westerns,
A file from the naughty folder. Thanks to my friend (you know who you are) for providing the background vocals. It’s all in good fun. 😘
