A regiment of railbirds

sterilized and sanctified

by social structures

dwell nightly as guests.

Their run or range never alters.

They never need any harrumphing.

Their recitals are true to their timbre.

In this gilly there are many gagsters

up to it in Grand Guignol.

 

On a quiet night

of which there are numerous,

I choose this babel of bellicose,

kind of corrida as sedative.
