George

Music: Thomas Leixlip the Proud.
By Turlough O'Carolan. Sequenced by Barry Taylor.

George is like an open, sunny field,
Exactly square, meticulously planted.
Okra, squash, asparagus, and such,
Rows of love and lust, but not too much:
George has everything he ever wanted,
Ecstatic in the fullness of his yield.
