The Savoury Deal
Contact the broker of special deals and
ask her to procure a savory one for me.
See if there may be an advantage
were I to acquire two, instead of one.
Make sure she knows all the lurid details
like my age, as I am seventy and some.
I want to feel secure that this deal, once sealed,
will not be hindered by anything, or anyone.
I will tell you once again, I want no limits
on what I can and cannot do, but I have
no preference if the hair is straight or curled.
Don't you see?We live live in a mad, mad world.
Go forth and pay the asked for sum,
as I can no longer, control this want. We must
schedule the imam, an annoying cost, just to
veil what some may see as wrong, with
sacred rites. Ensure that what I am paying for
is not older than twelve. The eyes must be
blue or green and the skin as fair
as what has rarely seen the sun. I will
provide for her needs once she's in my
hands. Most importantly, she must be
pure and by no other man eyed or held.
No pity in this world for any child, soon to be felled.
