Poem 032: Only Here


Lo! Look around ye needy soul
And cast the garments of despair
Come sate your hunger greedy soul
Imbibe this beauty debonair…

Senses, awake! observe in mirth,
Shake off your gloom, embrace the glare,
Salute th’abode of God on Earth,
This sacred land, this holy air…

Yea! Rise sick heart, and hail your peer,
Your love… for love lives only here!

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
