A Distant Mirror

Tainted gifts do Grecians bear
of gilded verse and venders cries
To lure those who would “unaware”
consent to sordid alibis

Talons of the Peacock maul
the flesh, and spill the frosted pit
Where be the one who promised all?
He’s gone and left the lamp unlit

Palsied limbs in darkened aisles
leave footprints in the bone-grey dust
Which time and circumstance defiles
then blows away with mute disgust

But I am young, I shall arise
break through the crust of Mother Earth
Who yearns to render paralize
but can’t, so fosters my rebirth
