And many happy returns of the day to Cyndi Lauper, 65,
once said to ‘dress funny’ and her voice likened to ‘rat’ (or ‘rat’s’),
singing the song ‘Money changes everything’, like a coarsened Bowie,
and to the nameless, ageless rat featherbedded in a mysteriously malfunctioning
Indian ATM machine in over a million mostly shredded rupees.
