Fellini fragment on Jildy
'No matter 'oo you h'are, Lord Billy Muck,
You gotta learn t'live life h'all h'anew
You 'airy h'aboriginal h'ape, you!
Nah straighten h'up! h'and learn to stand
Like 'Omo Sappyh’ens! No knuckles
Draggin' h'on the tarmac!
No saggin' sway–backs 'ere m'lad!
More of the 'uman, less h'of the simian
You 'orrible h'ugly man, you!
Stand like you mean to stop h'a cannonball!
'Ang like you gotta 'ook through yore 'ead ––
Suspended by yore h'own personal sky–'ook
H'as it were. H'as you were!
'Ands h'at yore sides h'and poised
H'as though for h'instant' h'action!
Right! H'along the gym h'and h'over the 'orse
H'off y'go! –– Nah you, you miserable
H'apology for man'ood!
H'on yore 'orrible flat feet h'up!'
