oh landlord dear landlord, rent late, deadbeat, drunk, irresponsible, tenant

Oh, landlord!

Oh, landlord!

dear, landlord!

toss me out thy

decrepit

window!

Ah, it was you

who trusted me

to pay his rent on time…

yet, all the while

it was I

who began

mimicking

the gypsy

drinking his ale

by the side of the

dark moor,

whilst I

gagged and bound

you to the foot

of your bed

promising

‘look for

me

by next

moonlight

by stroke of

midnight

through hell

and high water

I shall deliver

payment

in full’!
