rOBBIE fUCKING bURNS

The original name for the Bionic Man was the Ionic Man with Steve Austen played by a besotted Robbie Burns bedecked in a traditional Scottish trilby, a red and black mackintosh and bog-soled shoes, who saved the world from evil by reading poetry aloud under a windsock held aloft with a stick

Walpurgis Night (Walpurgisnacht)

The sky: a witch’s cauldron, crow’s wings, toadstools, a carious trickery, a scullery without the rub-stone, an avulsion of gray marrow bone gray; Saturday September 9th two thousand and six; the eternal return, this [a} teleological wasteland, a rub-stone without the Braille, this {a} foundry, a Coventry of trickery and misdirection, a witch’s playground:

Witches (in chorus)

Now to the Brocken the witches hie,
The stubble is yellow, the corn is green;
Thither the gathering legions fly,
And sitting aloft is Sir Urian seen:
O`er stick and o`er stone they go whirling along,
Witches and he - goats, a motley throng,

Voices

Alone old Baubo`s coming now;
She rides upon a farrow sow.
