Vera City May 2020
Olga the ostrich and
Cedric the lamb
Naive innocence and
Head in the sand

Never seen, never heard and never spoken
Interests unquestioned
Illusions unbroken

Dont discriminate "beware theorising"
The warnings were heeded
Resisted surmising

Cedric herded to slaughter
Olga safe in her cage
Medicine in the water
That will mute the outrage

Cedric sees what's ahead now
Olga's cage welded closed
Slave incumbant got here how?
That's just life, I suppose.
Girl in black masquerade gown with books balanced on head

One high-heeled foot on drum

The other

A laceless sneaker

Long-stemmed glass of wine in right hand

Slim bottle of Summum ***** in left

Background dissonance

Vintage grey vehicle with red interior

PYT seated in the back

Tatted up bad boy in front seat

Bearded man in tailored blue suit

Hand draped over driver's seat door

Red carpet rolled out to the entrance of a dive bar

that leads into a mansion

Eyes Wide Shut

— The End —
