Dedicated to the 50th anniversary of the publication of A Clockwork Orange, by Anthony Burgess, December 1962.
greetings my little droogies…
no doubt bog bellows choodessny chepooka
bolshy, bezoomny golosses
horrowshow crarks in me gulliver
plenny in the staja of me rassoodock
slooshy this veshch
gooly real quiet-like and kopat
these koshkas sloochating in glorious sneety-land
interessovat the gloopy scoteenas
to firegold a bit of the old moloko-plus down the gorlo
radosty comes to this mesto
but snuffs it like the yahoodies
in the bolshy bitvas of days long gone
what’s it going to be then, eh?
