A Year of Musing Dangerously by Russell Bittner

M a r c h

Last winter’s mad-dog clutches
spacergifmade a mess of this spring spree,
then snatched away my crutches
spacergifand dried up my do-re-mi.

Now, Lordie, if that’s all ya got
spacergifof life on one short shelf,
I think I’ll find some warmer spot
spacergifon which to sun myself.

In truth, my kind don’t give a damn
spacergifabout the world’s widgets,
cause living here, out on the lam,
spacergifwe can’t connect the digits.

So if this godforsaken pit
spacergifain’t nothing but a ruse,
allow me first to bitch a bit
spacergifbefore I self-abuse.

It’s true that what I wanted
spacergifwasn’t quite the thing I got,
since here I hit the skids galore
spacergifas tongue-tied polyglot.

A shame, too, that I simply can’t
spacergifproduce some better skit,
as that might put my Swedish rant
spacergifto bed before we meet

to babble with the best of ‘em
spacergifof mierda, Scheiß’, гавно—
and then, conclude our stratagem
spacergifwith a brummagem ‘no show.’
