The Village People’s Elegy For Timothy McVeigh

John Ashbery came to Texas.
He claimed to be a construction worker singing YMCA.

He claimed his boyfriend was an Indian.
He claimed an ex-lover was a cop. Ahuh.

But we here in Texas cain’t be fooled like that.
We sent him packing back to New York City.

We don’t let no a rabs knock down our towers,
and we don’t lao no poet-types south of Oklahoma City!
