excerpt from Indelible
And free from any hint of vulgar shade
The stature of our gallant judge remained,
For, yes, the very chief of that old trade
For likewise charges never was arraigned.
The Don had seen such drama play afore,
He pulled the veil of artifice away:
As rime by any other name is hoar,
“A total sham and effort to delay.”
He knew just how to tame a wailing shrew,
And gave no great concern to saving face,
When vicious hell cats made to pounce, he knew
To “Grab them by the pussy” without grace.
With wit as such who would not lend an ear?
Moreover, do I not quite well endear?
