First Line: Spacialesque trumpets corrode
Last Line: On a spoke of the sick wheel
Subject(s): Freedom; Reason; Liberty; Intellect; Rationalism; Brain; Mind; Intellectuals

spacialesque trumpets corrode
the haute peaks of the world
with spiral blasts to remember Reason
who gambled with Freedom for a pennyworth of salt,
forsaking the sea, tumbling about the clouds
to rivet without fail, to fail
clutching his bosom with remembrance

nimble feet we had, dancing
to the crisp tune of crustaceans
and so we came to grips with the godhead
deifying the joints, whirling
on a spoke of the sick wheel
