Untitled (“Oh, dear, what can the matter be?”)

In response to the arrest in Manchester for an activist brushing against a police officer
Sung in a mincing, childish voice, more or less to “Oh, dear, what can the matter be?”

Oooh! Oooh! I’ve been assaulted!
Bad boy! That man is faulted!
He… touched… the Prrresence Exalted!
Somebody save me from him!

Oooh! Oooh! I’m threatened so much!
That nasty man came so close he could touch!
How… could… Free Staters send such
A scary bad man after me?

I enact disproportionate retribution
For soiling my delicate constitution.
That’s so important, it invalidates
The meaningless one of the United States.

I’d deal with this case like a man, but I can’t—he’s
Part of this huge gang of fierce vigilantes.
I’m already wetting the lacy pink panties
I wear underneath the blue serge.

He’s off the street and I’m safer now, but
They need me to handle some dangerous nut.
I could get a hangnail, a bruise, or a cut!
Better pretend I don’t hear.

I’m so important, I save you from crooks.
That 8-year-old girl coming home from school looks
Like there’s a nail file stashed in her books!
Kick her down onto the ground.
