be the waiter at the Gonk

I would’ve paid

good money

to be the waiter

at the Gonk

with a line pad

in my back pocket

at the ready

loitering

with intent

picking up crumbs

after Dorothy

Dottie & Deems

there would be no bored

at those board meetings

nothing was too much trouble

to be picked over

pulled apart

it seems

remade in the light of wit

the fun in the acid cut

barb of conversation

if you don’t have anything nice to say

come sit by me

Ms Parker is said

to have said

quite

right
