Under the Table



From the Devil's point of view
You're not above the table
Underneath the surface
You are willing but not able

Underneath the table is
Behavior hidden from
Niceties of social norms
The Devil says "ho hum"

Discarded gum and restless feet
Dogs and cats ignored
Gas and indigestion
Betray the feast we gorged

If the equation is a table
We are seated at as scores
The common denominator is
Not above the board.

-EVE Featherstone

-nicety - a minor aspect of polite social behavior; a detail of etiquette
-discard - get rid of (someone or something) as no longer useful or desirable
