Raccoon

Coon, why did you come to this dance
With a mask on? Why not the tin man
And his rainbow girl? Why not Racine,
His hair marcelled down to his chest?
Why not come as a stomach digesting
Its worms? Why you little fellow
With your ears at attention and your
Nose poking up like a microphone?
You whig emblem, you woman chaser,
Who do you dance over the wide lawn tonight
Clanging the garbage pail like great silver bells?
