The minstrel in the gallery
He met the gazes observed the spaces

Oblique suggestions and he waited.
Static-humming panel-beaters,
Freshly day-glow'd factory cheaters
He titillated men-of-action

He pacified the nappy-suffering, infant-bleating,
(overfed and undertakers).
Sunday paper backgammon players
Then he called the band down to the stage

Looked down on the rabbit-run.
Saw his face in everyone.
