“Fob Off”

To keep someone in need
dangling,
to deceive rather than heed,
claim-wrangling
with victims and out-of-pocket
policy expenses,
to disregard lawful time, mock it,
and hence this
“vested” interest, a chained adornment
to a press-button key
unable to open a car door meant
to compensate fairly
while waiting for a court date
and making demands
as if the victim was somehow late
with the paperwork he hands
in due time, and for the devil’s due,
wondering what the heck
his guardian angel might do
since saving him in the wreck—
Is he on the clock?
Has he the time to talk?
