here comes cohn
that moron
with an ironic
jewishly stubborn
silly and pie-eyed
high on sips of spanish wine
looking so cockeyed
and cheap

here comes cohn
boyishly whistling
and with an air of superior
downright awful
giddy like the graduate
high on coffee
in need of a shave
like an expatriate
hangs around all the cafes

he's written all about the things he knows
so now he's onto all of the things that he doesn't know
each one of them genuine and bold
as the emperor's new clothes

go to hell, cohn
looking so sullen
and dull as a collection of lesser monets
your face sallow
as in the light of a bad play
an arrested development
of a damn fine tragic case

here comes cohn...
