Me, Ridiculous Me - Poem by Driss Ezzireg

Me thinks I a nightingale's light verse;
I think me heaven's despicable curse.
Me, Ridiculous me.
Me thinks I a high-heels walk;
I think me a dummy's talk.
Me, Ridiculous me.
Me thinks I a peacock's parade;
I think me love's lost serenade.
Me, Ridiculous me.
Me thinks I a breath of the sleeping whale;
I think me a stroke of the horse's tail.
Me, ridiculous me.
Me thinks I a drop of the morning dew;
I think me part of the ship's crew.
Me, Ridiculous me.
Me thinks I a pearl in the falcon's eye;
I think me a dying man's sigh.
Me, Ridiculous me. Me and I
can see it coming....
The finale!
