Everything reflects well on our city
Our audiences are amazingly perceptive
The string section has a broken heart
We cheer it because it is outstanding
Gulls smash into the great glass windows
I have never been more optimistic, more sanguine

She is riding naked on the catafalque
We'll to the woods no more my darling
I am boned, crack-skinned, malapropos
A chorus of dromedaries humming triumphantly
Revolves the stage machinery
Away from me, away from me
