DOGGEREL
 
   with annoying repetition

   the canary in the coal mine

   tells racial memories

   gives the very high sign

   while the world turns

   once more turns

   the tree on the hill

   shelters the blind

   the root of the matter

   is a box made of pine

   while the world turns

   moon rises sun burns

   thief lives by the double cross

   walks a fine line

   rich man smokes filtered camels

   in his single needle 3 piece suit

   with silk tie that binds

   while the world still turns

   the dog laughs

   the bed burns
