Upon the release from the workhouse
Janeen Marie and Loren followed up
on a gig that was promised to them before
their incarceration. Within 17 hours they
were working for pay as Macy’s elves,
although neither held the name of Crumpet.

When asked what names had been assigned
to them they both said in unison, “274 and 275.”
Shadows of washing the walls of Minnetrista
With stewed tomatoes will favorably follow them
around until the fat lady sings.
