Debutante 1

Stationed in an Alabama

dance hall,

the Ivy League soldier

drinks too much mint tea,

while the respectable insular

society nymphets

pirouette for his attention

and flare their Spanish fans

in flagrante delicto;

these daughters of judicial

Dixie Southland prudence

offer delicious maidenheads.

He'll conquer the tart queen

who will overwhelm

his taste buds,

co-opt her talents famously

after sacrificing the


to surplus debauchery.

He will then find himself


and drowning in sangaree;

she will blaze asleep

in an insane asylum.

Distant cousins in Ireland

now tune violin heartstrings,

sing Sruth na Maoile

across the Malin Sea.
