Píseň zhýralého jinocha

…from the quills of the dead white poets

František Gellner (1881 -1914)

Nezemru já od práce,

nezahynu bídou,

nezalknu se v oprátce,

skončím syfilidou.

Nezemru já u holky

ani na silnici.

Zemru volky nevolky

klidně v nemocnici.

Nezískal jsem za živa

lásky skutky svými.

Jeptiška jen šedivá

oči zatlačí mi.

Nad mou mrchou stáhne klaun

tvář svou v smutnou masku:

Zemřel tady vilný faun

na nešťastnou lásku.“
