Thoughts Of The Tedious Old Graybeards

This bathing cap, whose time-eroded pleats       [Roland ]

Evoke the memory of a carefree age       [Beefy ]

Has known a thousand watery defeats       [Roland ]

Thus spoke the world's most incoherent sage       [F ]

Assigned to cover the Olympic Games       [Roland ]

While suff'ring from a morbid fear of flames       [Beefy ]

This pocketbook, whose frayed and broken strap       [F ]

Betrays the ministrations of a vole       [Roland ]

Has nestled in the depths of Circe's lap       [Beefy ]

Since long before the Ozone grew its hole       [Roland ]

It watched and wept at the affairs of men       [Beefy ]

And smirked a bit at Monarch of the Glen       [Roland ]
