They’ll Let Him Take Her Again

This next time he does it

in style:

convertible, chauffeur,

the whole works;

And in his retinue

a trombonist, along with that pretty girl

with a silken voice,

and a feller who’s a whiz with an electric guitar.

Make a big splash.

That’s the move: strobe lights on face

as he steps from the shaft.

Get a rise out of them

right off,

get them begging for more.

Royalty or not,

they’ll let him take her again;

but this time

he doesn’t really give a shit,

so he won’t turn

to see if she’s there.
