(from) THE LONE RANGER DINES IN VIENNA WHILE SIGMUND FREUD HAS A BEER IN TOMBSTONE, ARIZONA
The Lone Ranger,
mask, silver bullets, six-guns, Stetson, and all
is dining alone in Vienna.
The place is small, inexpensive, out of the way, and excellent.
He has had a classic wiener schnitzel with spatzele,
and a vegetable compote of some sort.
He has avoided wine.
He doesn't drink,
and besides, an exception would slow his lightening draw
although that is almost certainly academic here…
… By parity of reason
(by parody of reason)
has just entered a saloon
in Tombstone, Arizona.
The cowboys at the bar
gawk and taunt,
"Haw Haw. Lookit the Greenie with the beard!”
