Starik Kozlodoev
Akvarium

Spolzaet po kryshe starik Kozlodoev,
Pronyrlivyj, kak korostel'.
Stremitsia v okoshko zalezt' Kozlodoev
K kakoj-nibud' babe v postel'.
Vot ran'she, byvalo, gulial Kozlodoev,
Glaza ego byli pusty;
I svistom vsekh zhenshchin szyval Kozlodoev
Zaniat'sia liubov'iu v kusty.

Zaniatie ehto liubil Kozlodoev,
I diuzhinu vraz ublazhal.
Kumirom narodnym sluzhil Kozlodoev,
I vsiakij ego uvazhal.
A nyne, a nyne popriatalis' suki
V okoshki otdel'nykh kvartir.
Polzet Kozlodoev, mokry ego briuki,
On star; on zhelaet v sortir.
