I don’t like the changing faces of men

They smile when they ought to

And sad when they are not to . . .

I don’t like the changing faces of men

They are like snipers, ready to fight

Prolonged wars, in ghostly cupboards

With leering skeletons doing somersaults


I really don’t like the changing faces of men

they sport moustaches in ghoulish ways

among talk of humanism and love


Their light banter among arid ribaldry

is another case in point . . .
