DOWN FALLS THE TYRANT


Worthy of a sonnet or an ode
don't you think? I asked
the worthy citizen in rags

rheumy-red eyes at me
grinning a toothless smile

'Have a taste, mate? '

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
