Wind-up Merchant of Venice,

Dearest Da Vinci of Derision,

Make me your muse for mockery,

Mimicry, dickory, dock,

The mouse ran up the schmuck,

Time after time after time…



Bagsy being the fool, the fall guy, the fish!

And you can be an eager angler, Angela,

It’s not under debate!


Unlike me, under your control,

Dora the ex-Explorer,


Lampoon me, pooh-pooh me,

Just don’t pass me by,


For I’m a fortuitous halfwit,

And how content I am

To be beneath contempt!


(Three jeers for me – Hip hip! Hurray! Hip hip! Hurray! Hip hip! Hurray!)
