A Sundae for Balzac

Your treat, Monsieur de Honoré,
a sundae, hot fudge,
an iced cream dream 
sans bureaucratic nightmares, 
those trance-like states
of oh, so good men;
the static office-men
who barely skimmed life's
sweetness--that hot fudge sundae 
nestled deep in the heart of all. 
Time to eat up. 
"Look! Monsieur de Balzac has already finished his!" 

The inspiration for this poem came after reading 
Monsieur Honoré de Balzac's novel, The Bureaucrats.
