The Singing Cup

 

Farewell said the old thuggish wing

Veer right on the rousing front

She, poorly posing her singing cup

He, losing his lead on foreign roots

 

Veer right on the rousing front

A purely cosmetic change

She sidesteps the peddler with a clout

She with his hands on the reins

 

A purely cosmetic change

Born on a kinder face

The street is praying for hate

To be punched by a singing of same

 

Born on a kinder face

Softer subtleties losing sight

Last week’s war is next year’s threat

Farewell said the old thuggish wing
