The cheap laugh hung provocatively
In the red glow of an afterthought
Lazily fanning the arrogant airs of a
Pedantic tragedian lost inside a
But oh how he yearned to give chase
Plant his carnal intellect into the
Joy of appetite
And quiet the tempest that mocked his
But no. He bit his lip.
Turned his nose upright
Wafted itinerant verses obliquely
To ponderous heights of critical acclaim.
