The Chaisson Keeps Rolling Along! [by Jim Cummins]

Dine PinocchioThe Chaisson Keeps Rolling Along

Over hill, over dale,
I pursue the Alpha Male,
I’m the Chaisson who’s rolling along.


Consigliere to
ones who’d crush the likes of you,
I’m the Chaisson who’s rolling along.                                   

[chorus]:           For it’s Hi! Hi! Hee!
                        Show me your poetry,
                        I’ll fuck you over for a song!
                        And where’er you go,
                        You will always know,
                        I’m the Chaisson who’s rolling along!

Boston Yes!  Boston Found!     
Boston
is the Holy Ground!
I’m the Chaisson who’s rolling along.
Cambridge
First!  Cambridge Last!
Cambridge sticks it up your ass!

I’m the Chaisson who’s rolling along.

[chorus]

Graham and Gluck, Pinsky, Sleigh,
they’re the ones I suck today,
I’m the Chaisson who’s rolling along.                     
But who’er catches flight
is the one I’ll suck tonight,                     
I’m the Chaisson who’s rolling along.                    

[chorus]

Pinsky, Sleigh, Graham and Glick,}
I’m their designated prick,
I’m the Chaisson who’s rolling along.
My own poems sink or swim
in the waters of their whim,
I’m the Chaisson who’s rolling along.

[chorus]

Cambridge Kicks!  Boston Lives!
while they hold the negatives
I’m the Chaisson who’s rolling along!
I’ll quit playing their hack,
if I get the photos back,
I'm the Chaisson who’s rolling along.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark


from New and Selected Poems by David Lehman
