Gnish Gnash Thy Penny Swept Cash. - Poem by Michael Gale

A filthy mess o' me...
A filthy filthy filthy flea.

Climbing and clamboring for many a fauna...
Perchance of late-
Tw'ill bring about life's long gone dawn.

Molest thy eyes to stagger blind...
Keep hard in check-
For half of met one filthy hack to lend a
lonesome bind.

Skip to a lu lu me darlin' deep in dew...
Step real hard then softly feel as if set in stew.

Slant this affair straight to heart....
Give up thy beast b'fore thy cart.

Mush-mush-mush and hush my darlin'...
Keep hope of fear fro' mornin's starlin.

Gnish gnash for penny swept cash...
Tie down real hard thy window'd sash.

    Nursery-rhyme feeling with a fabulous flow;
    non-nursery feeling of a sorrow you seem to know.

    Expressed with perfect clarity, Michael, painful to read (in the best possible sense) . t x
