Pretentious

Riding train, playing to gallery
He narrated with hands dancing
Piped maw lisping accented words
~
Suddenly train rattled and rolled
Waiter losing foothold, spilled hot
Tea on his immaculate clothes
~
Painfully scalded jewels invoked his lava
Eyeballs protruding, jowls ballooning, mask
Askew he spat guttural tirade, long ago eschewed
~
Head bowed
Hands wringing
Waiter fled
~
