Great Mumping Villains

from The Antiphony by Revolutionary Hydra



I'M not afraid of operating by the warps and bleeps of yon canal.
This living room it needs straightening, as it is it's mostly kind of dead and banal.
(I'm thinking of the time you threw me into the cold Rhine.
Evince how you shone, drinking from the dirty old Rhone).
This river life is so prostrating, I'm always at the beck and call of this lousy little barge.
The Cabin windows penetrating,
Curtains are mostly made of thrift store jeans from Calvin Klein…
(I'm sick of tho sickly cell, divided in hell we are so fine
am I such a boob, sailing down the dear old blue Danube).
So we met this American in Amsterdam,
He claimed he knew all the waterways of Europe,
But all he did was talk about the utter desolation
Of a French railway station at 4am, in the countryside…
It's time to sail the sea, sailing so Mediterraneanly, on cheap wine.
Look over there my mattes, it's the blessed Tigris and Euphrates.
