young turks
forty-odd feet
of kerosine fuel
fires the hot young turks

muscled athletes
jocked up on caffeine
fires the well-hung jerks

pansy wholewheat
a pacifists treat
fires the fat houseworker

my turk of a mule
packing coca paste
could not equel
the yule log fuel fire
of the hot young turks

young turks
stank like camels
hung like chinchillas
burly young gorillas
hair-net latinos
drag racing their camaros

[guitar solo]

young turks
forty-odd feet
of kerosine fuel
fires the hot young turks

courtly quad teats
of seventeen school
girls in their taut clung shirts

pussy-wipped pete
raised on wolverine stool
sired in a low-slung yurt

swarthy vice-squad secretes
nitrosamine drool
fired in the dot com bubble burst

salty cod treats
swimming in the cesspools
expired when caught, hung, and burnt

warty roughshod feet
in mujahedeen school
fundamentalistani turkmenistani

sporty soccer cleat
of propylene ghouls

fatty on my feet
stiffy in my bleep
roiling out a burp

printing out a spreadsheet
of philistine boolean
algebra of whatnot and whatnot
