Saturday Right Fever


I swing my lips to the left,
and my right arm
whips up to the beat. Hey
hey hey, making hey while the sun
spangles my diamond flares.
The disco kid. This budget
is all tax and the spendolettes:
boom banga bust. Gordon is
a moron. Whoo. In Europe, doctors
probe their patients with a proper
stroboscope. My medallion
is sterling. I wear a golden
choker around my throat. White coat
over my shoulder, I say
this government wants flayin’
alive. Flayin’ alive. Ah hah hah hah.
