No Credit Today

that skinny sango-worshiping tree over there
barely removed my head for asking for one more beer
may she develop elephantiasis only on her left ear
and may lightning flog out bad manners from her big mouth for a year,

that roasted chimp with lips as big as any cathedral located in hell,
and voice that dresses peace in funeral rite
came stomping and raging like a castrated horse,
then threw me out of the canteen without a cause,

she accused me of not wanting to pay.
me, not wanting to pay today!
had she forgotten one afternoon six months ago that i paid
paid! for my beers (then broke 8 was a mistake.honestly!)

she insulted me; insulted my hand-raising-alms-dropping legitimate occupation,
insulted me, she insulted my ninny-livered expectation,
nooo...may she marry a ghost and bear him twelve beautiful gorillas
may she be blessed with the breath of a vomitted vanilla.
