Majolica Lament, or “Australopithecus”

By Linda Kunhardt Linda Kunhardt
The farmer in the dell
The farmer in the dell
Ox chip gastrology
The farmer in the dell

The farmer takes a wife
The farmer takes a wife
Pupa reconnaissance
The farmer takes a wife

The wife takes a child
The wife takes a child
Sweetbread electrolyte
The wife takes a child

The child takes a nurse
The child takes a nurse
Cheese futz habitual
The child takes a nurse

The nurse takes a cow
The nurse takes a cow
Flatworm collateral
The nurse takes a cow
