Ya gonna splode ken baby dey seys ta me
so i steals dis raft & paddles
ta da zact middle a da lake
& put me land in order

alld sunk but me round lips
pouten bove de surface
o dis round lake bed & i thunk dis where
civilization zat
fr who da Christ cares
da nimbus come in da center
o de pond when God let da water out & dat mousehole drain
is kens lips laing dar 

fr cows ta tromp on
some walking fish stop by
& in da last week a lemon aide
Mestizo listens over da muddy sphincter
want enough ta build a stand
& take me oracle arsehole
to site she siten dar company
on her stool askin
da drug-seer questions
and putten em on da paper
to stuff in da mouves & ears
of Alexanders & all she ask
i don't be obscene to her public
cause only i died.
