Scrip Of Reasonable Thinking - Poem by dimitrios galanis
In life's theater which passions stage
suspended everywhere the lies are starring
with all masquarade's counterfeits
upon the masque of Trueness they wear
lest it nude insults mores bonos
used to dry wefts of unspecified senses
in front of flaming heaths consolations sparkling.
Ecstatic the onlookers from its Enlightment
flood the public fora
to spread the limelight of its fiery tongue
to crowds absent.
And you who did not deigned
to attend its on scene Epiphany
dare to ask the question
whether it was its naked idol
or any counterfeit masque of it instead.
Your audacity is struck by the thunderbolts
of those 'who know' brandishing
on hand the guarantee of having it heard and seen
typed on the ticket of the performance.
What a pity, soliloquize, not to give performances
the Common Sense too,
so that you had your own scrip of reasonable thinking!
This is a translation of the poem Mε Το Εχέγγυο Του Ορθώς Φρονείν by dimitrios galanis
