TWO SONNETS: 2, by            
First Line: Or is it all illusion? Do the years
Last Line: For me, my vision of the long ago!
Subject(s): Advertising; Mythology


Or is it all illusion? Do the years
Cover with glamor what was tawdry then?
Did moralists and such like thunder when
Antigone got drunk on Attic beers,
And danced too freely mid the eager leers
Of Plato's seniors, who bought up the glen
To prove to Athens that they lived like men --
And gave Antigone the college cheers?

It may be so. I should not think it strange.
Herodias, Antigone, La Belle --
One sisterhood. Perhaps we do not change
As much as some pretend to think. Ah, well --
Don't let me spoil your pleasure in the show --
For me, my vision of the long ago!
