  • "Here like a cat in sewer! Swelter and toil!
  • With my neck puffed out like a pigeon,
  • belly hanging like an empty sack,
  • beard pointing at the ceiling, and my brain
  • fallen backwards in my head!
  • Breastbone bulging like a harpys
  • and my face, from drips and droplets,
  • patterned like a marble pavement.
  • Ribs are poking in my guts the only way
  • to counterweight my shoulders is to stick
  • my butt out. Dont know where my feet are-

  • In front Ive sagged and stretched behind,
  • my back is tauter than an archers bow!"
