I salute my demise,

And when I’m sad I reveal,

To that inner sanctum;

My soul, If such I possess.

All sadness, indulgent, intro and inspection,

The numerous examinations of my many causes.

And how I wallow, my oddity fitting my stony shape,

Like mud always does.


I keep in levels both my self determination

And my disease.

Ready and useful for the next time,

The next time of dread.


I should not bequeath by seed

To others,

Save that they might

Reveal in my helix

A tendency to be too. . .


My fortress is my stream,

As conscious as I am.


More often than not,

I am off dreaming,

As usual, squandering,

And leaving early for tea.

I half languish in the agony

Of sated appetites.


Half fatal, half again wounded,

The quartets pay the dead ringers

With the folly of the Crown.

Whilst confiding in poetry

I re-tell of the damage I have slid on.


Right from my onset through to those yesteryear’s.

Onward to this trafficking hour,

And my final algebraic breaths.

I am calculus in fearsome knowledge.

Being serial through to my selfish centre

I am made equal, being appalling,

And saluting my demise with the confetti of monstrous lies.
