Branden Koch, “playground” (2018), ink on paper 8 x 5 inches (courtesy of the artist)

A-tisket, a-tasket
I lost my money basket.
I was in my limo
To the White House
And on the way I dropped it,
I dropped it, I dropped it,
And on the way I dropped it.
A stormy girl she picked it up
And put it in her pocket.

I have a little bird
That says tweet-tweet,
I have a little fixer
That says meow-meow —
Shan’t bite you, shan’t bite you,
(Not yet) shall I bite you!

A-tisket, a-tasket
I lost my money basket
I was in my limo
To the White House
And on the way
I lost it
