QotD: Droop in a hundred A.B.C.’s

Бля, не могу!

    *    *    *    *    *
	
I shall not want Honour in Heaven
  For I shall meet Sir Philip Sidney
And have talk with Coriolanus	
  And other heroes of that kidney.	
 
I shall not want Capital in Heaven	
  For I shall meet Sir Alfred Mond:	
We two shall lie together, lapt
  In a five per cent Exchequer Bond.	
 
I shall not want Society in Heaven,	
  Lucretia Borgia shall be my Bride;	
Her anecdotes will be more amusing	
  Than Pipit’s experience could provide.
 
I shall not want Pipit in Heaven:	
  Madame Blavatsky will instruct me	
In the Seven Sacred Trances;	
  Piccarda de Donati will conduct me…

    *    *    *    *    *
	
But where is the penny world I bought
  To eat with Pipit behind the screen?	
The red-eyed scavengers are creeping
  From Kentish Town and Golder’s Green.
