If The Janitor, When Juggling...

Gorris! [Surlaw]

By which the inhabitants of that town meant an eagle statue [Apsley]

Fit for the most obscene of all defacement [Surlaw]

Which is to say removal of the flight feathers [Apsley]

In one small area adjoining the nape of the neck [Surlaw]

With a pair of nail-scissors made in central Latvia [Apsley]

Bandun! [Surlaw]

Gay as the person was who vouchsafed to me, I doubt his word [Apsley]

Etched on a tiny tinder-box from Woburn [Surlaw]

Which is to say the architectural capital of the world [Apsley]

Since every other word consisted of nothing but vowels [Surlaw]

Strung together with some twine brought from Estonia [Apsley]

Mullonor! [Surlaw]

No razor-blade that I ever used or owned was of that make [Apsley]

Save when I hulked the haulage ships one Easter [Surlaw]

Which is to say a practice that I dare not describe outside the craft [Apsley]

Nor inside, when the mutineers defy the empty charge [Surlaw]

That they'd hauled from distant lands called Lithuania [Apsley]
