The Hustled Hustler

Remember who shoved and shifted the setup

laid out by a bunch on stage as if

assigned chorus of the times

extolling lauding

the hodgepodge

the balls daubed on the platform await resolution

while salutes and praise follow the celebration

a status quo dynamic one must follow

the entropy of sin

balls trolling the corridors

we seek justice says the saloon proprietor

the push and shove shifter tempter

the tempted talented alcoholic

the stunning pool player

denounced decried

Confucius is baffled as carnal edge awaits

the collective bets the pool table ready

for the cue stick the hold


passion craft wisdom

the chorus will now regenerate the setting

aftermath regardless because

it must as they say

life goes on

outcome regardless.
