The posings of a poet.

Father, Son and Wholly Host


Hèlios, el déu Sol, British Museum

Hèlios, el déu Sol

 

 

 

The father has foibles
But don’t all we royals
Greatly he failed
But greatly he tried

 

The son has his shame
But carries on the name
Greatly he flailed
But greatly he cried

 

The father is forgiven
But what has been riven
Greatly he assailed
But greatly he sighed

 

The son has a future
But ’twill need a suture
Greatly he prevailed
But greatly he died

 

The writer has left
With his ‘tory bereft
Greatly
he
failed
Greatly
he
tried
