Piano Bar

I’m appalled at how I spent my nights —
A type of Muzak for the well-to-do —
And if it hadn’t paid so very well
I’d rather’ve cleaned out cages in a zoo

The years I studied classics through long hours,
The awesome heights their genius understood;
Was now reduced to decorative noise,
A prostitute who wasn’t even
Good
