come hither mountain boy
come hither
come down and fondle gemstones
in the pylons of the elders

come hither hairy child
and let me touch your bristling brow
come hither and grunt
while the clouds are colouring

come hither Pangaean hominid
come down to meet your Saurian cousins
come now and take drink of this sovereign nectar
and take your rest in piles of coccoons

O come hither and hover here
sweet Chaka!
let us three brothers warm you in our oven
strip off your skin and baste you gently

O come hither or do not
but we are weary of gnawing capybara bones
O come hither so that we may enjoy
our singing repast!
