Small girl with the smiling gibbon
Bridled with an orchid ribbon
His curved brow in Scarlatti fashion
Boots that ride the night sky eagle.
An old crone squirms upon a cushion
Made from Madras silk and satin
Her steel eyes hold a scimitar passion
For the skull hewn in Scarlatti fashion.
A cobra seer with the punctured ear
Slaughtered a Malayan sun bear
Night stood erect with bronzen haunches
Zapped the seer and gave the bear back to us
Oh Palamino Blue
June's buffalo too
In the Parisian zoo.
