bear dropped this screaming babe
and took the sister, out in Tennessee.
out west this man gave up the monkey on his back
took the bears upon his back instead
everyone had told him but he didn’t
care if he died until he was standing
at proud Saint Peter, screaming why!
Simon Peter, who’d cut off this slave’s ear,
showed the man a fisherman’s gladius.
Peter had this blade all the days of all his lives
“My neighbors had this rooster once,” he said,
“I couldn’t wait to devour that crowing bastard.
Call it nature; carry a sword.”
