Nicked of name, slandered apiece
Pie plantation, harvesting
Tricked by same idolatry
Wince, dismayed, at feigned release.....
Reined in by the whip-cracking snide
Made man; debased in his parlor,
His greeting-card smile replaced by a vile-set
A weighty resolve,
A credulous host;
A fish in a tin:
A swimming success!
