OCTAVES: 2, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Tumultuously void of a clean scheme
Last Line: To brainless carnage by drunk trumpeters.


Tumultuously void of a clean scheme
Whereon to build, whereof to formulate,
The legion life that riots in mankind
Goes ever plunging upward, up and down,
Most like some crazy regiment at arms,
Undiscipliined of aught but Ignorance,
And ever led resourcelessly along
To brainless carnage by drunk trumpeters.
