An encounter

Leonora was out riding
on her gee-gee, Henrietta,
when she happed upon a wastrel
in a red dress and biretta.

‘Oh Lor! you gave me such a start!
I’ve never seen your ilk.
Are you some kind of pervert,
in your satin and your silk?’

The wastrel started shaking
in a storm of purple fury:
‘I’m Cardinal Pozzo of New York,
and I confiscate your gee-gee!’

‘Like I said, a pervert’,
responded Leonora.
‘Walk on, Henrietta,
and despise the red Signora.’
