How should I Define My Woe?


How should I define my woe?
Should I, a seed of it
In your heart sow?
Or should I let it reside
There in the labyrinth
Of my heart?
Or should I let it bloom
And spread its effervescence
Of despair and gloom?
Or better still,
Should I probe and poke
Its roots and yank them in a stroke?

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!
