A toast that shall never exist
to persons not ever missed;
A toast to the sufferers
of ambassadorial botches.
To the working class of the Congo
whose children wield Kalashnikovs.
To the proletariat German;
the indoctrinated warrior and his wife
To the darker man
A toast to the blind,
whose eyes were shut for them.
Synonymously, to the majority of readers
who have lost interest in this poem.
