Settling The Ways

Posted by Friar Turk , July 12, 2017 · 87 views

State of Mars De-Mything Myths The Blackbirds Blue
The pleasure of inevitable victory under the cloud-ripped Sky
gleaming......the Eye of zeus
no longer anxious to inspect the splitting void of expectant Mercury

Setting the ways of anthropocentric man
holographed and mezmerized by new dispelling spells
de-mything myths, unmythizable
or anthropomorphic
and shielded no more
by his ray-splitting burden
signalled by the fire
on shields of bronze

A punk-canvas and relief
relief of the burden
and relieved by the burden
a load of toxins and thorns, bristle and fence
worked against the great canopy of the gods
through vacant worry, aching body and stretchless anxiety
the songless sparrow offers his sweet parody of song

his mockery
just as the mockingbird, in relief of morning
and with morning song
mocks those birds
who've forgotten to sing
the golden finch
finching some new melody of pinched flowers

"Go Now, the Victory is Ours!" He finches or parodies
"Hunger No More!" He quails. "The Bread of the Lord has fallen
from all fears."

You were right to claim the victory.
Now and forevermore.
Lest Nevermore, be the black flight of the Raven, blotting out the
And our rightful Forevermore.

Parting ways with the Blackbirds Blue
and the swords that hue
"Go from this Wasteland. This tragic heap of remorse. Or even worse.
A Remorseless Mule you Shall Be."

There shall be no tragedies on the moon.
or tragedies few

Returning from battle with your sheild in hand
Set it next your spear and indelible hand
Sew new sprigs on the moon or the State of Mars
Grip this peace with my song in your Ear
Chantingthe future as it beats at the Drum.

Appreciate your comment and your feedback.   The writing and reading of poetry is a lasting and true statement of civilized life, probably much more so than the reading of fiction; i.e. any kind of novel.  


Although prose is perhaps much more emblematic of the faculty and capability of structuring advanced scenarios which either plausibly account and reckon the judgments of contemporary life (any kind of romance or crime novel) and/ or project, predict and prophetically yield to the future of civilization (and its many issues: ethics of terraforming, the use of nuclear capabilities, the laws of property and/or future governments).
