A Basket of Biscuits


If you think bribing an official
with foodstuffs is something
you’d like to attempt,
I’ll have no part in it.

You know that greasing
the wheels of justice
can lead to a runaway
freight train, don’t you?

I brought the mayor
a basket of biscuits
one time, only to see his mouth
snarl up in a frown (he’s
allergic to buttermilk, turns out).
