Is the story of the depravity of the beat generation true?
 Daisy and Lily, lazy and silly 
Walk by the shore of the warm, grassy sea
 Talking once more neath a swan-bosomed tree
Rose castles fourelles, those bustles where swells
Each foam bell of ermine they roam and determine 
What fashions have been and what fashions will be
What tartan leaves born what crinolines worn

Queer, Queer 
Queer, Queer 

By green (thefis) pelisses or farlahine blue
Like the thin plaided leaves that castle crags grew
Or velours d'afrande on the water gods' land
Her hair seemed gold trees on the honey cell sand
When the thickest gold spangles on
Deep water seen were like twanging guitar
And like cold mandoline and the nymphs of great caves
With hair like gold waves of Venus wore (Farta) fine

Wild fire passion and impossible temper
The nymph tagliongrisi the ondine wear
 Plaided Victoria and thin clementine 
Like the crinolined waterfalls nymphs wear beneath shawls
 Elegant parasols floating are seen
The amazons wear balzarine blue
