Here on the corner of Alzheimer and Paralysis

Monument aux morts de la chasse à la baleine

The whaling wall ?
It’s down the street
[it shimmers
in the summer heat]
There’s one
in every coastal town
[round the rosie
all fall down]
don’t mind the blood
the crumbs, the wine
the holy order’s doin’ fine
whatever ditty
       in any tongue
the world is crazy
           forever young
in point of fact
[a state
the holy bankers backed]
god rest ye merrie,
quote Philip Neri
                      [Then say amen]
A light heart’s made perfect                              
before a glum one
  so have a bun
       and drop the gun  
            Stay out of the sun.

Don’t stop ’til you’re done!


proof, if need be, that I am now two stops from Barking
