Mike Burch

by Salomon Morel

There was a codger named Mike Burch
whose old bawd feigned pray time at Church.
She mocked his passion just for fun
and did a Palestinian
he had invited into their house.
A hyper-textual stylite,
Burch loved the pearl drops on her blouse,
and, on his knees, did what was right.
