The Cavalier in Drag

January 16th, 2006

The cavalier in drag today arrived too soon to the cabaret
His windows wept, and swept the washing fluid away but
Alas his timing, all right he was rhyming,
The rhythm of which makes the riddlers twitch
And a notch of the stich in his briches was kitsch,
But his timing, oh right, I believe it was night
Yes, the dawn had not yawned before he was in sight
Insightful I guess, but the cabaret dress! It was wrinkled
And sprinkled with a melliferous mess,
How will the damsel remain in distress if
Her corset keeps losing control of her breasts!
But the cavalier’s timing was apauling at least,
I’d consider him fired if not for the feast.
His fingers can fly when they’re flipping the yeast
And yelling while cooking, telling the fellows to
Find their utensils,
and looking over all of our bookings in brooklyn.
I need him around when there’s work to be found
And my can he work, like a willing young hound
Holding things, moulding rings perfectly round.
The rotundas are stunning as well as the crown
But the king isn’t here, he’s cringing in fear
“crying won’t help, when my time is near”
said his father to try and make everything clear
but the king cradled bibles and prayed to his idols
that his old man not perish by the sword of his rivals.
“nonsense, young lad! You should be glad,
this kindgom is yours and its all that I had!”
if his fashion was as good as his timing was bad,
than the cavalier might’ve reconsidered the plaid.
But perhaps that mis-hap with with one of our mousetraps
Will lead us to leasurely fill in the gaps…
There was never a rodent stuck in there at all,
But a spy sent to monitor all the king’s calls.
Now we had a hostage locked up in our prison,
But he knew a thing or two about cueing a prism
To spasm and spall up a sizeable chasm
In the floor boards to make an astounding escape!
But as he was leaving, what did he hear?
The early arrival of our reliable cavalier!
He caught the bad guy, and the king’s father did die,
But not by the rival who hired the spy
So that’s how he clumsily saved the day
And now he’s the director of our cabaret!
