when i was a lab-mouse
in the house of lords,
i guess i ate cake. they'd feed
me like a plant, but
show a picture of betty crocker,
life was fine.
the fourth reich's
about the same,
but we got more sugar.
language? the
first palabber talk? gracie
tells of a mother to be,
the father's from holland.
says the woman's
learning dutch
so's she can understand
the baby when
it gets born.
