A Circular Circumvention - Poem by Patti Masterman

The world is prosaic archaic algebraic
through its looking-glass eye

The world is a gyp it's a rip it's a racket
better sack it
before it fills you with lies

Dirty pool fleece the wool find the snitch
Bait and switch sucker's game
let them eat all your lunch

It's the screw just of you zilch to do
say you're through
and be sure
not demure
that you've screwed them all too.

    Remind me not to mess with you.
    I tried to bait and switch one of your zilchs'
    but the levers were rigged, now the games tilted.
    I really enjoy your work.
