Come through.                                            I need everyone

To be my kind suitor this evening.

                                        I’m swimming Sudafed

And sinking with some

Vital energy                      Which might be 

              Of some use                                        To the commonwealth.

I hate the way I look walking down a corridor. 

When I get like this                    I just want to besmirch you 

               Sullenly and ensure                                                The safety

Of the palace guards, And the watchmen,                     And,

If I tell you the truth.                Will you love me till suppertime?

I think this time                                               I’m changing for good.
