Poetic Development: The Gala

Poetic Development Banner

The Gala

Hypocrisy is lovely when surrounded by dollars
And other accouterments
Salmon pate on dry white toast points
Lightly buttered, the real thing pleased
Weathered wine in sexy glasses
Slipping down the throat so mellow
A wonderful conversation piece
Spruces it up doesn't it
Turns a bare Charlie Brown Christmas tree
Into a Park Avenue Douglas fir
Dripping with tinsel and lace
Hypocrisy can then ooze its ugly grace...
