La Rue

crazy eye joe stands
on the corner of 34th
and 5th avenue crying
out some random chant
we are the nutters we
come from the sea
we are the tangerine
fighting machine!
no one looks at poor
ol' joe he waves his
arms in the air and
repeats his chant again
and again until a group
of angry British men
surround him and beat
his poor ol' body oh poor
ol' joe oh poor ol' joe i
guess he never realized
his chant was offensive
to the British in 1984.
