Irony Is The Last Refuge - Poem by Shalom Freedman
Irony is the last refuge of a metaphor-less poet
Saying more than one thing at one time-
Slanting the surface meaning back upon itself
Making fun of its own insufficient complexity-
Irony is the last refuge
But what is irony?
Of course this is the most ironic of all
Relying absolutely on something
One does not even understand if one has -
Not irony, Ignorance and Desperation
