Cornish Ghetto Wedding
In the meadow (which is a ghetto),
the well-heeled and so-so dressed
make do with luxury.
Basilisk businessmen become mellow-eyed,
and the wives, well the wives
do what must be done and make do
with what must be.
One of them lets breeding slip
and slyly mocks the Northern tongue
of a waiter who would rather be
anywhere but in this paddock,
the genteel meadow, so pleasant,
where these ghetto folk
sharpen their knives.
