The Reveal

In older times
we might have called this
a quick, dark moment.
But this was white, bone hard.
From the boy's club room.
You were asked questions
that you did not like.
So you got some numbers tabled
which you thought labelled
the question asker, as
Weak and greedy, needing help?
What this piss mark
was supposed to say, was
"Don't mess with me,
in my shining tower".
A minister was revealed
who should be reviled
for this abuse of power.
