The Vogue of the Moment


Like the brand new car

all shiny and bright,


that even its reeks

smell with delight.


The vogue of the moment

to make your mind right.


The new car gets ga-raged,

special treatment tonight.


It’s the brand new thang

that’s shiny and bright.


The vogue of the moment,

for at least, overnight.


A thang?       A thang?

and just what is this?


You silly old thing,

a thang don’t exist.


It doesn’t?       They don’t?

Then something’s not right.


It’s the thang of the moment

I’m trying to fight.
