the curse of the ninth

                                     for davos


they’ve come
they’ve mingled
they’ve talked  

the cartel’s been formed
the consensus made
the cocktails downed
another crunch put to rest,
prone-naked at the feet of their castle

it doesn’t help
to be culinary-rich in my third-world kitchen
it doesn’t help
you piss on me to demonstrate your trickle-down effect
it doesn’t help you help

you, the showboat who will sink in the spittoon
you, the priest ghost who fears no sermon
you, the oxy-moron in corporate straight-jacket
and you the platitude of the opulent   

watch out on the ninth
there’s a scratch angle
