Umpire's Chair

If a poet couldn’t use a camera, this might well be how he would write.

The Uphigher’s Chair
A solitary seat – no nest for two;
Having someone else up there would spoil the view.
A highchair for grown-ups,
Lookout, for the Lord of the dust off white lines.
Judge and jury – hand out fines.

Sitting duck for assassins,
Discriminates against paraplegics,
Can be electrified during thunderstorms.
Seat of burning,
Lofty abode.
Highly unsuitable as a commode.
