The Playboy of the Western World


In my rompers, in my bib,

Toys thrown well outside my pram:

That’s the cut of me, my jib;

That’s the way I am.

Feel my width and weigh my bulk –

Watch my elephantine sulk.


Pick your punches; always hit low;

Taste of snake or diesel oil –

I’m a papule, wen or whitlow,

I’m a vicious boil.

Some say that my bubble’s burst.

I came very very first!


I have every toddler’s charm,

Random tantrums by the score,

Full of drivel, full of smarm –

Hear my tiny roar –

Jim-jams decked with stripes and stars,

I bang my rattle on these bars.


Look inside my yellow-bile eye,

Count electors, state by state,

Watch the winners pile high, while I


My finger jabs! I am divine!

The world is mine all mine all MINE.
