ways to defraud the public.
Waging against the odds, they found
the sorceress huddled at the side of the road.
Her long braid hung down her back like a wispy tail
suggesting wisdom but they believed it was ruse to elicit
sympathy. The businessmen tried not to express their disgust,
because to them, she was a dumpy whore, with dull incantations
surrounded by stories exaggerating her ability to spew spells of
magic with skilled witchery. They finished their interactions treating
her like a naive teenager and much to their chagrin she soaked them
in bile and today they appear like damaged artifacts on the world
stage. Carriages bring the curious to observe the sight. Eruption
at the point of devastation transfixes their views. Many
sing hymns and some use humor to dispel their moods
but the arrogance of Wall Street precluded
this untidy end.
Karma seeks revenge,
however long overdue.
