Poem of the infamous pawnbroker, the seedy side of society
 



PAWNBROKER 


THE PAWNBROKER
A MAN OF LICENSE
WHO FEEDS
OFF LOWLY DEEDS
AND DRINKS
FROM THE WELL OF THIEVERY.


THE PAWN MAN
HAS A HISTORY
FULL OF MYSTERY
NO DOUBT WOVE
BY HIS OWN INSIDIOUS MIND.


HIS WARES
BY SOME STANDARDS
ARE A TREASURE
WITHOUT MEASURE
A DISTINCTION PROPOSED
I SUPPOSE
BY THE MAN HIMSELF.


BUT AS CERTAIN
AS THE TREASURES
HIDDEN IN DUSTY BINS
OR LOCKED VAULTS WITHIN
IT'S STILL AS CERTAIN
WHEN MYSTERY DEBUNKED
BEHIND THE CURTAIN
IS A ROOM FULL OF JUNK.


  copyright 1999
