Oracle Of Delphi…0902-2k12 - Poem by saadat tahir

From sibyl rock*, Delphi* churns
fire breaths as the world burns

Muppets tap that oracle* spins
or who at Olympia* finally wins

Marble black or sandstone pits
Gladiators pitch to end of wits

Pangaea* floated to many shapes
Flung to mounts, craggy capes

At every Tholos*; columns remain
Python* rots like efforts in vain

Resounding claps in atrial halls
the seat of Pythia* at UN calls

Endless lies at the wailing walls*
Weary haulers trudge bearing palls

Soiled in smirks are dooms untold
Sad the world as fates unfold

Helping hands are cut to shreds
also those just raised for breads

Bodies at sea in loaded weights
As dots have gelled to nation states

Behind Seville suits are wolverines
Fecund they grin to march marines
