Street Arab Wish for Emirates

These street Arab wishes for grey head
Raggedly and poorly breed
Brainless child begreed,
of nachos and fajitas in the street
Your toes in your fagged feet
Wanderers in my nobles neighborhood
Who shall i becalled your Mothers blood

Die-hard towncrier imp
wantoness seen in your eyes and dimp
Ragamuffin on crazy couture's
Lad of the devil born through the saints cord
Whisper snapper, gutter snipes
Quiet watched i through my baseline
the mischief maker going minx
Asked one of them what would you like in dream becomes she say out a Kinks
Kings that drives in Zebra automotive minks
Shall because your Father a Monk's
And or by nobelbirth a Donks?

Even was never thought a one
Hungered by battered was I
Yet in the cookery small a nose
Smelling the Nachos and fajitas meals
Made for the headking alone
Which to me a 'touch not', and 'taste not'
A simple heart that with no Guy's gut
