Archy Returns


archy the cockroach who was once a vers libre bard has been very quiet for some years but he has come out of hiding and attacked my keyboard once again.

I thought I heard mehitabel down below the other night.

I see he has not learned to use punctuation or capitals even though he now uses my computer keyboard and not Don Marquis’ typewriter.

Sadly, archy is still not a happy cockroach and he has bad news for us.

hey boss

i see you have not
australia is still
a disgusting mess
and now someone
is burning the trash

which will make the
digging up of stuff
easier and cheaper
and things can be
made easily worse

australia has not yet
tidied itself for
international presentation
and your office is still
the same mess it always was

your leader is as insane as
the leader of the usa
and i have been talking with
other cockroaches

they all say the same
your leader will be squashed
so a worse can take his place

even now he is planning his
immortal leadership with a
thousand year rule while you
laugh at him and call him a potato

i would not eat him
he is poisonous
and will not taste good
but you go out and
drink those bubbles

you enjoy and relax
with mehitabel say
wotthehell wotthehell
death and i will coquette
there s a dance in the old dame yet
toujours gai toujours gai

because it is now too late to
change the future which
is short for you two legs
and four legs
although we sixlegs will
survive and thrive
