Who I Am When Cathy's Out of Town

for Adam (and in absentia Ken)

Not conversant with the S & P, Nuveen,

With the tiny scores that make men great,

In front of my own vanity unseen1,

My corporate agenda: Late;


Drunk dependably by 10,

Face down Who Knows Where by 3,

And then it's Jäger time again

(Thank God I'm talking with E.S.T);


Good friends with air guitarists, Fergie,

Dressed predictably in Tupperware TM:

What if this is just the CV

Of, besides some others2, Molière3 or Eminem?



1. That's bathroom vanity to you

2.  Insert here names of hedge fund managers, or even of author

3.  Who was Molière exactly?
