Some Dignity Remained

Some Dignity Remained

With these hard untrue words:
I like your
political opinions
inquiring spirit
homemade strawberry pie

you picked me up on your tusks
tossed me
and my ego with a big hole in it
out of your way
applying that neat concise stroke
you let me lurch out of here.
I will take that strawberry pie with me,
