Under Compulsion

 

 

(for B.M.)

 

 

You have to listen to the blowhard’s talk
Because the bishop thinks he’s A-okay.
Although you feel the forceful urge to walk,
You have to listen to the blowhard’s talk.
The bishop doesn’t waver if you balk.
Loud idiocy has to rule the day.
You have to listen to the blowhard’s talk—
Because the bishop thinks he’s A-okay.
