A Gal in Every Port!
Nail the hippies in the hips from hipsters: clam-bakers, land-bankers, sea-twisters, crumb-cakers, scram-shakers, suited porters, suitors in Portugal, a gal in every port!
Shut up pope! I yelled, not because Larry Mullins is Toby Dammit
nor because anyone easing gently is better than one who will ram it
nor for concerns on a sandwich where the peanut butter and jam sit
not even for a million pesos for the patent on my patented lamb kit
It's water weight that concrete walls must contain Hoover Dam wit'
Carp do not swim upstream so can it with the salmon-die sham shit
Emperor Shōwa: On my '84 Isuzu truck will a Mitsubishi cam fit?
Where will my sister Pam sit and who swiped my Tokyo pamphlet?

Poet's Notes about The Poem
'What water is to thirst, so normal metabolism is to cancer.'
John Richardson, M.D., "Richardson Newsletter, " 1978.
Pay your dues, shine those shoes—regarding Beatles and spawn: George Harrison will get even with these bastards in hell! Maybe not so ironically: the Rolling Stones played Red China and Teresa Teng wouldn't as she knew the country is run by State eugenicists, abortionists and war criminals.
