Puppeteer Extraordinaire

A puppeteer extraordinaire.
Manipulating strings of dare.
Arrogance in playful wage.

Turns my head and bends' my back,
A twisted puppet on a rack.
Capricious is her railroad gage.

Unbeknown I ride with her.
This upside down utopia.
No need the puppet on a stage.

She plays the strings skillfully
Almost always convincing me.
No matter what the outrage and

I cannot understand her zeal
Or the unction of her anneal.

Well done (again), Seymour. Someone giving you a run for the money? Pulling your strings? Driving you nuts? (I know what that feels like!) Again, very enjoyable reading!

Sy, we're gonna have to rezone your neighborhood as a business district 'cause you must have a factory over there! You keep putting them out and they keep getting better. Good work, Sy.

*smiles*
i like the rhythm and the rhyme of this piece a lot as well as the contents ... almost seems to show a compromise and acceptance of the puppetmaster/mistresses every whim.

Sparse but dense, leaving plenty of room for imagination. Really liked this. Thanks.
