A mantle of suet, 
to wear charm school
on threadbare 
mask to gull have the 
face in laissez-faire
patsy, a soft touch 
as the garden of old school
is biddable remember 
in sotto voce easily 
in your upstairs crony room
the public-space gurus
are on new artificial hillocks 
pilloried to roam freer 
down under turning 
to skill predation  
the admin cortex
brittle alert break 
given as bellwether smite
