There’s a rumour going round that street
Pushing past their little destinies
Caught short Shakespear relieved himself against the corn sheaves
The fox startled bit the leg of the harvest jigger
The painting has little time to dry, as poets' pens begin.
To take down a street of music, blended to new worlds of rhyme.

Riddles flow through digital death traps
What is a man now with no cheap cigars
A mad dead love of afterthoughts gone
Mad Tony's hologram cycles around the
