Litany for Thy Talents

By Reb Livingston


Let us refrain mastery for our clash
by launching the anguish of the exalted Woe-dodo.


Woe-dodo, vessel of pleasure,
tendril of good-smelling hair,


beloved of unanswerable savants,
you are instance to the worth of handy affection.


O you who wears a scarlet bra
and ninny sheath


pray for us that,
though you are unworthy of a recognized wrap


we may have our names voiced from Thy Woe-dodo yap.
