(Ein Gedicht von Dieter Kermas)
Flohrian und Flohrinde
die waren Eheleute,
und warteten hinter`m Spinde,
auf leck ́re Menschenbeute.
Sie waren ganz versessen,
für Flöhe ist das normal,
auf Blut zum Abendessen,
für ́s Opfer eine Qual.
Oh Schreck, man hat sie eingefangen, und die Freiheit, die war futsch, Flohrinde ist gleich eingegangen, und Flohrian zieht die Kutsch ́.
