Coup d’État

On the floor,
Big Daddy’s swagger stick
points an accusing finger
at the crumpled long johns.

In the perfumed bed,
his woman sits up,
ashen-faced:
a maggot in a peach,
surprised by the knife.

A Third World dictator, whose name need not be mentioned, was reportedly in bed with his mistress when the coup plotters struck.
