LATE BITE AT THE EMPIRE

A mediocre Caesar

Salad at best

Maybe Campbell’s Soup

 

This little Caligula

Server cracks pepper

And jokes in the groove

 

Smooth as Aqua Lube

Hits on the blonde

Hostess—not even

 

A Greek or Jew

Handling the menus

In this Italian bistro

 

Which could be on the bank

Of the Vegas strip

Another American Classic

 

Fastidious décor, Dean

Martin crooning “Volare,” TV

Screens, ornate stagecraft

 

But like the magician

Working the lounge

At the Elko Ramada Inn

 

Our Romeo waiter

Is working for blow

The Latino bus-boy

 

For minimum wage to feed his

Addictions—Academy Award

Performances all around

 

The Coen brothers

Should be all over this

Shit, maybe they are

 

In the can with it and

John Goodman’s cutting lines

On the toilet tank lid

 

Like Moloch mixing cocktails

Cleopatra will seem cheap

As these hotel maids

 

Palming the used shampoo

Before scrubbing the tub

On their hands and knees
