what if, too

and what if i am

the true reincarnate

of napoleon,

won’t they all be surprised.

but i’ll bet the old hens

will cluck among themselves,

“i knew it all along,

the way she carried herself.”

yes,

and don’t they have

better things to do

than going to church

on sunday mornings

when they could sleep late

and fill in

the new york times crossword puzzle

in pen

if only the little old jewish men

hadn’t done it on saturday

(because every good jew

gets it delivered on saturday)

and what if i really am

the true reincarnate

of no-one special,

would they say

they knew it all along?
