mister trickster ( retskcirt retsim )

why the weatherman

was struck by lighting

      on the ninth of september

      ninety nine times

is why the breeze chuckles

covering the cracks

      of the pavement’s grey

     with banana skins

as two fat ladies

on their way to the bingo

      are flattened by the eighty eight

      bus to clapham common

is why the baker’s wife

who was pregnant

      for the twelfth time

      gave birth to twins
