Das englische Fräulein

Die englischen Fräuleins gehen in langer Kette durch die Stadt,
Zwei und zwei, in ihren schwarzen Mänteln wie Morcheln, die man aus dem Boden gerissen hat.
Aber im Sommer tragen sie violette
Schärpen um den Leib. Sie schlafen allein im Bette.

Manche ist so schön,
Man möchte einmal mit ihr schlafen gehn.
Aber sie sind so klein in ihren schwarzen Kapuzen,
Ich glaube, wenn man sie lieben will, braucht man ein ganzes Dutzend.

("Die englischen Fräuleins" von Klabund, 1890-1928)

SPAM POETRY DU JOUR

INTERNA

My beloved brother has a blog now. I'm so proud. Make sure to watch his vampire short film if you haven't seen it yet.

I'm having incredible fun with my new translation tool at the bottom of the left sidebar. If it already says the darndest things in the languages I do understand, I assume it totally sabotages my blog and spits out loads of insults in Japanese, Korean and Chinese. Huzzah!

    Nopie. But I get around 150 spam emails a day and not all of their subject lines really catch my eye. ;)
