The Poetry of
Jack Scott

One Monkey Down

So poorly
you have used the rest of me
to little profit but my loss
yet come now to me for refund
with petty argument
and no receipt,
no proof of an offense.
I have not said no to you
through all this aggravating time
until this final now, this no.
You have used me far too much
now do not use my ear.
