Placid Penitent - Poem by Artchil Daug

A horse stumped over the carcass of banality
in this grim wilderness, no lightning dared bolt forth meaning;
accepted the resounding echoes of undying fidelity
to a machine and a system strong to withstand almost anything;
Love left its rightful place to rest in the towers of Valhalla
in the deep caress of Valkyries it dwells upon oblivion
while vipers and monsters played on earth with any agenda;
Buffoons and baboons, smirking belt of Orion
with happiness settling easily in the hearts of the decadents
resentment filling the essence of their loving soul;
Producing the wretched becoming of indecent arrangements
this bastard love confused beings overrule

With love denied in the fondness of critical hypocrisy
the world is plunged into the depths of perverse insanity!

But wait, there's more
Those who don't understood any single word I said,
decadence and degeneration characterize the dead;
continue to live in caves and accustom yourselves to shadows,
in this senseless world, no poetry thereby follows!
