Summit

Vintage Words

.

And when the nations congregated

at the cynical time in the aborrent

place, gargoyles looked down

from clouds having kicked the angels

to the curb.

.

And when the giantine leaders

of all the earth's greatest nations

waltzed in ahead of their dainty

delegations, carnations in lapel

holes wilted for the dandies

reflected in the glass of high

chandeliers.

.

And when the summit was declared

democratically assembled about

the round table, pages appeared holding

gilt hide bound Agendas that raised

cups and brows.

.

And when the discussion exhausted

itself, and the drink, too strong for diplomats

and presidents, prime ministers, and queens,

toppled royalty and laywomen alike,

the summit was declared a success

and, soused, everyone went home.
