Play the Game

Written by: Vincent Procopio

Shine your tarnished silver
Guests arriving soon!
Make the right impression
Or wind up on the moon!

Guess what, Honey?
Boss loves the chow!
Keep his goblet full
And the crinkle in his brow!

It all paid off
I finally got the nod!
Jet-set buddies
And a house in Cape Cod!

Stock option plan
Bloated paystub too!
Puts, call, futures…
Who else can I screw?

Where is my family?
Lazy ingrates all!
I put food on the table
And took them to the mall!

The best in death as well…
A sterling silver crypt!
What? Membership denied?
Angel’s wings clipped?
