Ringelnatz, Joachim: The Guest Book (Stammbuchvers in English)
So – an ein Stammbuch hingezerrt –
Denn mancher Gast will weitergehn
The Guest Book (English)
Dragged to a Guest Book sans pardon
You are non-plussed
You feel locked up into the john
Needlessly. You feel disgust.
For many guests in passing by
Want not to leave their writ
And throw their ink dabs, on the sly
Unseen, where they may fit.
