 The Poetry Machine

 

                          The phrase is deus ex machina

                          But I seem like such a pariah

                          There's sabot for every machine

                          I feel like a closet queen.

 

                          Incognito or incognita

                          It really doesn't mattah.

                          Hopped up on so much amphetamine

                          That I'm tempted to be mean.

 

                          An alma mater with no alumna

                          Would not have pleased my grandmamma

                          The culture of the Pleistocene

                          Gave rise to the evil Augustine.

 

                          He had the morals of a Shah or a Pasha

                          That he precipitated a coup d'état

                          Being such a Philistine

                          He was the libertine-est of the libertine.

 

                          In modern terms he's so bourgeois

                          He allowed no femina in his Utopia

                          He was the essence of the obscene

                          He had the mentality of a drag-queen.

 

                          I quite identify with his aura

                          I must be a member of his diaspora.

                          So let me hasten to come clean

                          I beseech and implore your forgiveness

                          I pray for your mercy.

                          I solicit your sanction

                          For my disposition to demean. 

  

                                                        g Tiberius
