The Wry Commons

The kind chief of midsummer, a Swiss man of answers,
admitted the scandal in sympathy.
He was the plant on the secret committee

seated at the bottom of the Thames
to escape meltdowns in the reactors of government.
I was sinking, bumrushed, cooling the evasive philosophy

that the eyebrows of parliamentary alacrity
openly pleaded for. His deft suffering humor
could provide a whimsical treasury of wisdom.
