Trickster

By Rory A.A. Hinton

"The trick, William Potter, is not minding that it hurts."










"No rose without a thorn but many a thorn without a rose." 
(Arthur Schopenhauer)

It won't take you
Anywhere you want:
Billionaires to the left
Dealing with the right,
Morgan was the Fed
Before there was one.

Brief shining moment
MoMA lot made plain:
Political man
Made wealth,
Inside job
Less stress.

Grief stricken torment
Torn against the grain:
Sartorial woman
Trades health,
Inside mob
Stress test.

Unusual suspect
Suspects triangulation:
In between
Even woman in,
And odd man out
Back tricking himself.

Betting the farmed
Family man ran:
Back to his shit
Filled rose upon rows,
Of blown backed thorns
Hurt by feigned liability.

Self-made sabotage
Her proud failure:
Your lost fortune
Teller keeping up,
Appearances disappear
Here in this unjust desert.

"There is nothing in the desert, and no man needs nothing."
