Cutting Out The Middle Skin - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

My brother-in-law.
What a man!
He used to be
known as Kojak.
Until,
one day,
he met a Bolshevik.
Surgeon he was,
that one,
knew his stuff.
Cut the central
three inch width of skin
off the scalp,
then had those from
near the ears
join hands on top.
Kojak's new name is
Struwwelpeter.
