For I Will Consider My Cat Jeoffry (Excerpt, Jubilate Agno)
Poem By Christopher Smart
It's never too late?
For a way of life,
You wish to resuscitate...
That is clearly dead and gone!
There is no comeback!
Move on from prolonged yearnings.
And begin to feed on the encouragement,
Of an insight that brightens!
Hoping the faith you have kept...
Has connected well to divine spirits,
You know will not let you down!
And who will protect you and your 'reality'
From the onslaught of crushing delusions...
You have been led to believe,
Had a quality that would forever sustain itself,
With just the right touch of propaganda maintained.
