    From faded newsprint used to wrap a fish
    Inscrutably the muse selects your face
    As I sit drinking famously in an Irish bar
    Five thousand miles and thirty years away

    With the usual ceremonial you were crowned one night
    King of the field where doctors nail the cows
    To make of the cock's quill the rights of language
    And the pricking heart a sword against the hours

    Let smirking scholars writhe in their favourite bondage
    And hold you plaintiff to the charge of art
    Exhibit A: he falls on legendary lines
    Singing mother I don't want a pain here in my heart

    The judge in me sucks eggs and jerks the sacred meat
    But the boy in me still dreams in Milk Wood town
    Like two provincial bastards playing the galleries
    I hold your photo to a mirror upside down

    And as bacon wafts through hungry streets, your ghost pervades
    Just like an old ex-boxer aged twenty two
    Staged-up like Falstaff or the wild welsh Rimbaud
    You'd laugh to see the monograms they make of you
    Ah, Mr. Thomas let us ramble through the midnight fair
    Let us throw old bottles at the ferris wheel
    Let us paint library on the library let us raid the moonlight
    Let us steal whatever we are supposed to steal

    Let us watch while the days grow daily more mundane
    That rough God go riding with his shears
    Hack wide the belly of the swollen mountains
    And rip molten heroes forth from their furious tears

    Oh, Mr. Thomas, oh, Mr. Thomas,
    Let us steal whatever we're supposed to steal
    Mr. Thomas, oh, Mr. Thomas,
    Why don't we feel whatever we're supposed to feel

    Oh, Mr. Thomas, Mr. Thomas,
    Why don't we feel whatever we're supposed to feel
    Oh, Mr. Thomas let us ramble through the midnight
    Let us throw bottles at the ferris wheel
    Let us paint library on the library let us raid the moonlight
    Let us steal whatever we're supposed to steal
