Three times she asked me,

“Do you No the Truth?”

but positively I denied my ignorance.

Miss understood, I wanted to get out

through the window,

but there was Knowledge to stand on, after all.

So I bravely joke in my defence, telling them

where I stood on the Mater, saying,

“Listen! You heard it first from the horses’ lips:

My Mother-tongue made me a laughing sock

and now I’m just a happy soul.”

Then putting my beast foot forward,

I raw down all opposition with my sandpaper tongue.

But alliance share always

with feline pride,

so by legal claws I got my cut

and laughed all the way to the blood-bank.

Transfusion! Confusion!

I end up with a Contusion!


Now I’ve turned over a new leaflet

and read the instructions on the back.

Poorly translated from the original Korean,

they advised they were not responsible

for unintended consequences.

Yep, one day this religious angle is going to pay off.
