Thank you for your contribution to the business (Damien Posterino)

Knifed in the back. 

Whisky again. 

Back on all fours

fossicking for the clues

you missed.

Only a fool 

listens to a laughing crowd

with their white lies.

Stripped naked like a prisoner

cover yourself

with storm clouds,

holding your empty card 

signed by all.
