Chapter 8 - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
With your emptiness,
And suspicous intent!
You sent two drinks,
From the bartender with a wink!
Believing a weakness,
Will provide a hook up to link!
I've seen you hop from table to stool.
Flirting with your looseness glimpse,
Hoping to attract unescorted fools!
I happen to be in research...
Observing singles at meat bars!
And if you have read the note I've sent,
You'll discover my taste for raw oysters and caviar!
I will probably be up real late!
I will put some wine on ice at 10.
And if you're not knocking on room 815...
You will be much too late!
I'm seeking a subject...
On those who tempt old geezers!
To complete my findings,
And put a close to chapter 8...
With a bit of social unwinding,
I could use and appreciate!
I have a view to share that's nice!
If you decide you will like to be satisfied...
Knock softly once,
With a 'knock knock' twice!
('Chapter 8' a 'Theory of Employment, Interest and Money'
written by JOHN MAYNARD KEYNES (1883-1946))
