“So You Want to See King Kong”

“So You Want to See King Kong”

So you want to see King Kong duke
It out with bi-planes and kamikaze pilots
In a blaze of satisfaction for the zealots
Or the proposition that motivates the fluke
That holds its own and centre stage, the chorus moot
And so’s the audience, by the way connecting dots
And pulling all Pinocchio’s strings until they’re taut
With hearts and diamonds opening following suite.
But yes, of course, spades and clubs the poet’s corner
With a Mercedes straining at the hectare’s plough,
Leaving all the world to wonder just what’s a luxury for
And how the fields end and highway’ mourners’
Thumbs have disappeared on the horizon of the here and now.
