Delegates of desire
and liquid courage
enjoy a long-standing affair.
Post the derring-do unease
snubs efforts at placation.
Emotions are the currency
of the penurious.
The upscale seek exonumia
as a weapon in
the armory of exchange.
Intolerance is the signature
of a mind
that hasn’t moved
a legion.
Prejudice is its paraph.
