Barber, barber, come and get me;
Hairy torrents irk and fret me.
Hair and hair again appears;
And climbs like ivy round my ears.
Hair across my collar gambols;
When the thunder stalks the sky,
When tickle-footed walks the fly,
When shirt is wet and throat is dr…
Look, my darling, thats July.
Through the grassy lawn be leather…
The turtle lives twixt plated deck…
Which practically conceal its sex.
I think it clever of the turtle
In such a fix to be so fertile.

No coat of pink doth wear,
But midnight black from cap to spu…

Beneath this slab
John Brown is stowed.
He watched the ads
And not the road.
My friends all know that I am shy…
But the chipmunk is twice and shy…
He moves with flickering indecisio…

He’s like the shadow of a cloud,

Behold the hippopotamus!
We laugh at how he looks to us,
And yet in moments dank and grim,
I wonder how we look to him.
Peace, peace, thou hippopotamus!
Though you know it anyhow
Listen to me, darling, now,
Proving what I need not prove
How I know I love you, love.
Near and far, near and far,
The song of canaries
And when they’re moulting
They’re pretty revolting.
