Crediting Delusions Has Become Their Debt - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

It's difficult to rid the table,
Of an exclusive feast.
It's difficult to tell those seated,
The feast they eat is no longer free.

Chores given are refused,
To wash dirty dishes.
Participating in a clean up...
Many who sat dismiss this.

And the waiters and the cooks,
From them have gone.
And those who are left to pay the bill...
Are not accustomed to what's going on!

And no one amongst them,
Has skills to combine...
To prepare a meal.
Or can produce a dime,
From empty pockets they all feel.

Since crediting delusions has become their debt.
And no one can leave,
Until all payments have been met.
And coming to collect,
Appear to be...
Chinese?
To remove everything unquestionably made,
In China!

The crystal.
Dishes!
And menus too.
