Venus Infers

The old man and his hat;

Battered from Harlem back to Camarthen

Gravy stains and camembert,

Man, he took some beating.

Stays away from statues

Nowadays, he slowly blinks

Ivy snagging drain-lids to

Catch the train back home.

Bells in china

Shattering eunuchs

Alabaster wristlocks

Stinking petals

Chop it off, boy

Join our troupe

We´ll dance with Sacher

To Andy´s Chest.
