Denizen of Devil sulphur on his breath
Most evil of demons name of ‘Bore Humans to Death’
Some know wonder seconds dancing through their time
Some seek action in a faction everyone calls crime
Story told captured sold mock slaver’s promised bliss
Folks steam full ahead when blessed with passion in a kiss
Young man Joseph O’Malley left his home one day
‘Stimulate him kindly’ Master of his art did say
Joe at best hit the test written for his play
Addendum they did send him genius on Stanford-Benet
Sparkle seen evil mean sultry sainted good
Sensed then burn just to learn then be understood
Solid is a hard find paths Joseph runs free
To find again again barren simplicity
Eternal Demon knows his weapon has been keeping score
Bores some young old cynics
To find excuse for war
Every mate these days crying as love sails or flies
To strange unknown lands politic blinders on their eyes
Sounds a lie a woman sighs research it in your book
Demon has a trick called ‘too many second looks’
As before behind a door or curtain of a game
Act metaphor love or deplore direction of your name
True for real solid gut feel step back take a breath
Stays around most anywhere ‘Bore Humans to Death’
Nero’s burning of Rome and suicide.. replete with many folks surviving by running to the sewer system is a dark ‘social prediction’.. was he a tool or a fool?.. is ‘et tu Brute’, though from a different time and premise relevant.. for it represents to me the felonious duplicity of Roman Politics..
Though obvious, it does not escape me that Rome.. and the Caesar clan are remembered primarily for conquest and war.
Further study shows a complicated, well thought out plans for social endeavor from Rome.
Greece was, and is remembered and identified with Socrates, Plato, Cicero and other thinkers of note.
There are also the Olympics.
Whenever I think about the inertia of civilization I remember it is mankind for the first time.. every act is that of our infant species.. Peace Tony
