#58 - Woodlouse In Vienna

Woodlouse wanders around the Staatsoper
with a little woodlouse-sized top hat
and a diamond-tipped cane with


etched down the shaft.
Actually, the gem is paste,
but at these dimensions

all but the keenest eyes

are taken in. Besides, Woodlouse
is here to listen to some Mozart,
not flaunt his considerable wealth.

The conductor lifts his baton.

Already, Woodlouse can see
this will be a class act;
he fiddles his little legs with glee.
