French Form

Have you considered using the French form for this?

It's good, but
Audio media could take it to the next level.

Digital video might kick it up even more.
I could show you how.

Here on the beach where we pair off and roll in the shallows like shipwrecked rabbits,
Here where the bonfire is heaped with shit we liberated from the Monet exhibit at the Whitty,
Her head looks good on a stick
Good on a stick
Good on a stick.

It's a weird stoned kind of semaphore when we wave her around like so...
North,
South,
East,
West,
Fly the head, feed strays the rest.

Oh, little corndog, this is our French form,
Learnt in Nawlins,
And brought up the river in gris-gris bags
By us no-accounts,
Us hags.

Look down, sweet honey with the wooden neck...
We could show you how.

Have I ever mentioned you are woman after my own heart? (Hopefully not my head as well, because I still use it occasionally.) I need some blood and warpaint after this one.

Have you considered making a video of you reading this in French while beating a voodoo mime with a corn dog? Just sayin' . . .
