America Gentleman II
His long stripped Hat is a storey thing
Yet his head scantly fills it to the brim
His Brain being below the first floor
Floats in the scar sprinkled Skyscraper
Vaunted as “Most Sublime!”
His Coat flows so long and so bright
A frayed notorious Cat O’ Nine Tails
Only that he’s the Cat of Nine Lives
Coaxing a scary plague back in Town!
Racy colours of Pied Piper!
Arriving at the Port from land abroad
“Hero’s in Town”, RED carpet rolled.
Frowning: “Been into too much blood,
“I wouldn’t desire that kind of stuff
“Flag you raise to honour me must be
“A Scar Spangled Banner!”
Then on tow, kid captive from abroad
Chained and destined for some Zoo...
A stage was set for a Hero’s welcome-
To lavish with fun and raucous praise
“I need no dough with no hologram
“Of Pirates on eye-hoods!”
