Squawker’s Pie

Squawker’s Pie

poor little rich man

can’t have all his ducks

quacking in a row

he lost, they won

he cries wolf

I want another go

but karma would

again have its way

speaking with the same

cast iron fist

he won’t be served duck

this time round

but another slice

of that money pie

ala mode he so trusts

eating of it until he

has to unzip his trousers

and just about busts.
