If

If the man owned a whis­ky bar
he’d cut his booze with water
and hire a smal­ler man to hand it over,
but he’s not that man,
he’s a lawyer
and when he visits bars,
it’s to talk serious­ly about the law,
then slide light­ly into sports and
jokes about the fal­ling mar­kets.

But if, let’s say, upon reti­re­ment
he were to become that man
and open the bar above,
would he uphold the law or  
swal­low the lure of lar­ce­ny ?  Perhaps nei­ther
but scribble ins­tead his fan­ta­sies,
as he wan­ders the halls of caprice.
