if they listen to you,
you listen to them;
if they applaud you,
you applaud them.
Next time you are on your feet,
I will be on mine, leaving,
because voting with feet
is something you do understand.
It's just a stage set isn't it,
for your jostling and posing,
flaunting and jaunting.
They may not be as good as you,
and it is, no doubt, tedious having to listen
to lesser mortals,
but listen to the bloody poets!!!!!
Show them some respect.
It may pay, you know.
I may not be the only person, concluding
that providing you with adulation
is a mug's game.
If the hat fits, wear it.
Though it would need to be a big hat.
