Alas

 

One chair.
Many takers.
Push and pull,
Seat is cool.

Hands and legs
Break into pieces
Power eggs
Bursts and hisses.

Crown is bare
Bulls and bears
Never tire.
Meandering morons
Move on and on,
Failing feet
Walk over defeat.

So much fight?
For pelf and might!
The poor chair
Can’t face it right
It’ll soon disappear
In greedy air…

None will last
To say, alas!
