Charlie

ROLLI



When the late Charles Chaplin came to tea

unexpectedly, we

talked little

stared much

shamming drink with the cups

dry

 

Finally, I (a child, then) said

“Charlie, you’re awfully clever”

 

He smiled

 

“But I can see your coccyx”

 

The great man spat his tea, grabbed

his hat, his cane

 

And down the lane he went

clattering, quick, spilling

bones all the way
