The embitterment of wormwood
Was in his heart
And the strange night's gloom,
But semi-mellic words were on his lips;
He mumbled a hopeful dirge.

He clutched a thorny staff --
The sesame of the ultimate door
Which was twined with a viney philosophy.

He was sensing his way
In the thin light
To the acropolis of oblivion
To bury with many sorrows
Of his life
His last and lingering sorrow,
Which was life.
