A Calypso, of sorts, as if Ligeti (or one of that crowd) suddenly took an interest in such forms. In the original performance by the Dignity of Labour Ensemble, the interlude consisted of the bass and drum parts offered here, plus curious percussion from the rest of the ensmble, and the recitation by Peter Lonergan of the following (decidedly subshakespearean) peroration:

The unoriginal rhinoceros on the dollar bill, Worshipped by financiers, calcium junkies, albatrosses, Signals fine crosses near Fam?ly Values and Main. Recalcitrant miscreants shipped by the bosses, Are but fancier callers of unrefined strain. Under their overcoats, above most calumny, Alkali animals miscalculate shrilly Their egregiously unsheathed financial losses, Event?ally yielding drunken alimony, Tripped strategically across their mammalian brain. A serious camel neither soars nor tosses Prancingly hither toward bright boats, Precambrian, Shielded handily or knotted all: ignoble Dancer amidst Mammon?s massive trouble.
