In Effigy

28 Feb


Shall this continent bear
the weight of misdirection,
and of thee, ruler of men,
reason must be disproved;
for thou doth bode well,
imparted of thy echelon;
brilliant, that thou art bold,
in thy cunning, remembered;
but ne’er stayed in epitaph,
ne’er reborn as enlightened,
nor in thy stead, inherited;
as thou wouldst but wither,
common masses of gossip
had thus strained thy words,
and exposed thee wide-eyed
as mere idolatry’s charlatan.
