Das süße Zeug ohne Saft und Kraft!

Language: German (Deutsch)

    nach Durchlesung eines Manuskripts mit Gedichten

Das süße Zeug ohne Saft und Kraft!
Es hat mir all mein Gedärm erschlafft.
Es roch, ich will des Henkers sein,
Wie lauter welke Rosen und Kamilleblümelein.
Mir ward ganz übel, mauserig, dumm,
Ich sah mich schnell nach was Tüchtigem um,
Lief in den Garten hinterm Haus,
Zog einen herzhaften Rettich aus,
Fraß ihn auch auf bis auf den Schwanz,
Da ward ich wieder frisch und genesen ganz.
