Poetry Corner: “Evening Management Classes”

Evening Management Classes

greedy grasping suburban sniffers
assemble after work
haunted by prospects of lower class blues
fired by ambitious dreams
ontological drama forgotten
in the dance of dollars
the future manager
shines like the star of Bethlehem Steel
clamouring to absorb the techniques of worker manipulation
and win the Audi A 7
respect, dignity
wholesome people of the community
and not even that expensive Italian fragrance
masks the smell of their shit
