O! Savage & vile & pink & bloated thing!
Curs’d uncanny globule of despair!
Monstrous, too! So pale & shuddering!
Its gleaming talons clawing at my hair!
Hast this being come t’ announce my doom?
Its head is like a chaffinch or a gull.
It has been sent by Doctor Bogenbroom,
Invoked by minstrel-wizards Jethro Tull.
