Looking at the map of the world
(do livro "the happy birthday of death", 1960)
Germany has lots of meat
O what a treat!
Yet I thought of monkey meat
And dared not eat.
Holland has beautiful blond children
Different than Brueghel's children
Who are cheruby potatosacks
Sweden has sinister schemes to create
the airports of space and time
St. Paul's of England
is God's men's room
France has created the weird guillotine
Italy has given beauty to the world
Spain where the cult of bloodstream
roils sad gayety
Monaco is useless to the world.
Mexico is enslaved in Ten Commandments
-- the brightest catch of God
America is the most promising of empires
-- stamp collectors will have to re-geminate
their American albums
Venezuela had a dead man on the shore.
