Deal 707: Sonnet

Success is a heady dram of whisky
knocked back swiftly, overwhelms nose
and throat, leads to thinking cloudy
foggy brains and manifestoes.
Swan famed for song sung just pre-decomposed.
Is song the death of the swan or other
way up? Philosophy transposed
gentle bird to briefly suffer.
Ringing wrong time ringing interrupter
dying Swan’s theatre now with ringing
the crowd ringing ready to kill buzzer.
Silenced now the terror is receding.
Sniff of success, but then cellphone swan song
Silence phone and earn a chance to live long.
