Away With it All

Evil is most common
in the crannies of comfortable living
where men maintain silence
to live well beyond the level and luxury of others

in corporate halls confidentiality forms are signed
the worst lies are quiet truths, suppressed
a fig leaf over The David’s balls
the boys still exist, obscured by foliage
like an undercover agent wearing a wire
who will be exposed by his own nervous excitement

and the whole operation
blows up in everyone’s face
thick pearly ribbons of shredded trust
screaming children and arch villainy
the Joker wears a solemn disguise
to hide the ebullience of getting away with it all
