eric wheelbarrow the third

in the key of A


eric wheelbarrow the third
emotionally green
socks and sweater lemon curd

eric wheelbarrow the third
son of the nouveau riche
a microfiche absurd

daddy’s a merchant
his seed good stock
down the club
he shows off everything he’s got

must be professional
a handshake firm, but
best be careful what you yearn – for

eric wheelbarrow the third
mind of a schoolboy
pornographic connoisseur

eric wheelbarrow the third
hoists the legion’s eagle
loves the regal old bird

at the 19th
he braves the dare
swallows mother nature’s
mirrored silverware

deep in his bunker
a holy one
score infinite
as he drives – into the sun

eric wheelbarrow the third
soaring like an albatross
on Calvados – my word

eric wheelbarrow the third
happy in the out-of-bounds
now found beyond the herd.
