    The Great & Mighty Corpse

    Post by Aichu on Thu Sep 03 2009, 22:08

    Hello hello, been awhile!

    Poem:






    The Great & Mighty Corpse

    Here is laid in shallow grave
    The Great & Mighty Corpse
    Soil reeking make fetters bronze
    To round fell soldier’s ankles fasten
    A lock! A bond!
    And throw ‘way the key!
    And his watchtowers rot away
    Sinking ‘pon and ‘pon like ravished Hell
    Starving devils, wyrms, feast ye now
    Behold all empire is fallen
    All treasure buried with its king
    Young paladin rends his helm
    And to the tomb descends to rest
    N’er life’s sweet musk to taste again
    The Great & Mighty Corpse sways
    Scepter, topped by grinning skull
    Calling ‘pon his forlorn men, yet
    Behold! From them no breath rises
    Nor black sword lift in battle
    But condemned are they to bareness
    To artificial heaven rest therein
    And therein them rests, unleaded
    Nectrin from his bowels give way
    And all held within spill forth
    Fluids break with body and stain
    Ground, no more new life garner
    To take root and there flourish
    Only maggots prosper from his deeds
    Day by day growing fat on the
    Blackened heart that resides
    In rot’d cavity of his breast
    And the raptors that tilt charred
    Heavens above cripple their talons
    Bow their heads and make descent
    To feast on the fat that in the
    Heat of day boils up through soil
    Stew of emperors their trough
    To make grotesque feasting
    O familiar sounds of flesh a feasting
    Did ere such grave I see before?
    These Roman forms of thy warpath—
    Visions, visions, why hark!
    I know thy works, I know thy fall
    Tis the grave of every great diadem
    And staff, and weapon
    Sheathed in bronze fetters
    Ye Great & Mighty Corpse, all powers
    Look on thee with fear and envy
    On thy grave who can gaze
    And tremble not at the works
    Of thy hand?

    I enjoyed the imagery and rhetorical statement at the end!

    Quite Moving indeed
