Konečně je to možná věc

…from the quills of the dead white poets

František Gellner (1881 -1914)

Konečně je to možná věc,

že ještě něčím budu.

Do Afriky se vypravím

dobývat zlatou rudu.

A nebude-li ze mne nic,

co tulák bez profese

budu se s šelmami o závod

prohánět po pralese.

Za ženu vezmu si gorilu.

Myslím, že shodneme se.

Má srdce divoké jako já

a též je bez konfese.
