Dream Song 800


by Gary Percesepe


for John Berryman

 

Henry mastered at ten the celestial sphere

Loving neither you or me, only his fork

He once was a prince but now is small beer

 

To tell you the truth he gave us a scare

All his denials had lost their torque

Henry mastered at ten the celestial sphere

 

It's hard to lament when you haven't a tear

The last of his wives fired the stork

He once was a prince but now is small beer

 

His novel was published to many a sneer

Was up for awards but then he got borked

Henry mastered at ten the celestial sphere

 

He thought it might help to announce he was queer

Having started as Mindy he finished as Mork

He once was a prince but now was small beer

 

He moved in with Randall, mermaid & bear

Purchased a telescope & soon dreamed of quarks

Henry mastered at ten the celestial sphere

He once was a prince but now is small beer.
