Enough rope

The shop that sold shoe-laces by the foot
has closed; the artists moved in
and bought nothing but wine:
cheap wine, red wine, artists' wine

then came the rich who liked the artists' life
but wanted better wine and heating

and after the rich came the horribly rich;
they pay the rich to catalogue their pumps
or fly their boats to Gstaad.
