The god who ruled the Empire State Building
Has subdivided himself into smaller gods
Each of whom dislikes all the others
(Save for the ineffective god of the lobby
Who lives on popcorn and loves everyone).
The master of feng shui who impersonates
The spire on the Chrysler Building teaches
That sacrificing a red kitten on the fifth floor
Of the Empire State may bring success
But even thinking about it on any floor
From the fifty third to the seventy-seventh
Entails grim afterlives in thrall to the elevators.
