Hidden Rudyard and the False Dmitry’s

On the walls between the windows

Of the apartment

With commanding views of the sea

Hung three portraits

Of the False Dmitry’s

One, Two and Three

 

False Dmitry One

Sold umbrellas at a market stall

Outside of The National Sports Stadium

He sold only blue umbrellas

He sold no others

 

False Dmitry Two

Sold umbrellas at a market stall

Outside of The National Sports Stadium

He sold only yellow umbrellas

He sold no others

 

False Dmitry Three

Sold umbrellas at a market stall

Outside of The National Sports Stadium

He sold only green umbrellas

He sold no others

 

They all searched for the Hidden Rudyard

but could not find him

as he was hiding in a book of poems

being read by an American sailor

on a passing ship
