Beard of Bees

I’ll trade my tie for a beard of bees

Sink a city block with the seven seas

Ride the wind and forget the cars

Follow the way of the sun and the stars

Throw away my membership to any stars or stripes

Join the nation of the blue, green, and white

I’ll trade my tie for a beard of bees

Sink a city block with the seven seas

I’ll kaleidoscope my tongue, sing every song that can be sung

I’ll scream up on the mountain on bended knees

Of Virtue

How I sanctify a dear verse!

How the Munitions of the gore tremble at the chapters of nuance!

The Martyrdom of Desire leaps from the ancient spires they sit upon, crafted to keep them

“I will shout until another shouts!” their hearts proclaim to Zephyrus

A rapturous levanter roars after each man recites his verse

 

How I wish to be great!

The long bleak corridors quiver at the benevolence of my quickened step

There before me lies a copious pile

Greatness heaved atop of Honor and Tradition

A slither of fellows stepping slowly

Ushered by grasped air and hanged expectations

Thereupon the monument, they cry “Sanctify! Sanctify!”

Only to never lift their eyes
