Breathe on Me, Breathalyzer
What is that sulfurous smell?
Is it the mouth of Hell?
Or is it only Morning Breath?
With you, I cannot tell.
Through mystic haze and mystery,
Through funky dark and gloom,
Throughout the house and yard and park
And to the edge of doom,
It penetrates both brain and soul
And harries unto death—
Begone! foul demon, Hell-bound hound,
And take your stinking breath.
If thou must wind down, go downwind, please;
I’ll remain up here while thou tak’st thy ease,
for I’ve found if a lady’s downwind of thee, she’s
immediately an endangered species.
