FOR ALAMS. That’s all.

Yesterday, our Oga On Top wore a dark mien,
reddened eyes and a black bowler hat

With the gravity of a mourner he
dribbled this ichor from both sides of his mouth:

“The leopard previously known as Leopard
shall now be simply known as Wily Fox.
See? Leopard is bleached clean
his tummy tucked in his appetite
reined in his snout chiseled in
and is in fact now: Just Wily Fox.”

We adorned our noses with twitches
painted our mouths the colour of mirth
and nodded acquiescence
Bleach, tuck, hem as our Oga did – hard he did –
Leopard, now Just Wily Fox,  never quite lost
its many dark splotches of  black.

One thought on “FOR ALAMS. That’s all.

  1. I am laughing hard at Wily Fox. Not a funny matter at all but just had to! Statecraft is now a jumbled panther on a dreamy path.

    I love these lines:

    “We adorned our noses with twitches
    painted our mouths the colour of mirth
    and nodded acquiescence”

    Impunity reigns and we still laugh!
