At the bad husband’s buffet
The tallest guy commits a long-winded prayer.
The biker dudes with helmets jammed
Between their surgically repaired legs
Take over all the best window seats.
Mini royal palm trees, synthetic breeze
Latticed lime pies to rub out a boss of bosses for.
And in the central seats are the nannies
They speak bikini; it is
The only language they need.
