Poem 030: Avenging a Dream


I felt it… no! it was so plain
I knew it would befall to me
That mortal bestiality
Insatiate, will assault again
Oh damn you brothers, damn your strain

That I’ll attend another dream
Dissolve and fade to emptiness
That I, back to my loneliness,
Should mute my pain and quell my scream
Th’eruption in my sanguine stream

But this time I will show no ruth
Nor sham a smile of amnesty
Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth,
And falsehood for dishonesty

So mark me as I take revenge
Yes mark how subtly I’ll avenge
My wasted dreams, how I’ll requite
Your evil deeds with dire blight

And ware me as I cast my spell
For I shall turn your bliss to hell!

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
