Dinner Party Closet


Having guests over at seven o’clock today
and the table is set with the sides and entrée;
Can’t leave anything out and there’s no way
we’ll forget what to leave out well past the sorbet.

We’ve a lot to skirt around and stuff in the closet,
like religion, and politics, and the state of our wallet;
Can’t bring up class, caste, or race; that may cause a riot
and everyone should leave without fights having started.

So our dinner party closet is really kind of full
and we’ll keep it that way because we’re way too cool
to talk about things that really matter at office or school
like how to make life better for a world full of fools.
