Debt Inspectors

The old world struggles, lying under a net
“Cast it off” someone cries “and quickly be free”
but the lead weights appended of heinous debt
make this acrobats trick an impossible feat.

“Don’t you see spaces” they say “in the web?”
(It is made of holes for the most part, it’s true…)
“in fact it’s ninety nine percent
simply dice yourself, you’ll quickly fit through.”

And so a knife was taken up
and hacked and carved from foot to head
but the finished pieces weren’t small enough
and the ground ran with blood: white, black and red…

For want of not upsetting the cart;
We’ve had the tragedy, now it’s time for a farce…
