The Hringhorni


I missed the holocaust but not too late for Al Qaeda’s fate

The misery of the human condition travels on a broken wing

A grey-brown sparrow fluttering briefly to avoid cats palm

 rescued from its pain by the skill of a bloodied hawks jaw

Two brothers slept that night on a straw palias or a minks pelt

Father John heard the tail of one whilst t’other lay with a counts virgin

the story so full of deceit that the iron priest blushed blood

and was said to stay up half the night, wrestling the angel

The soldier wearied, covered his eyes, his earliest friend fallen

he counted his loyalty and weighed it golden in the balances

If justice had any remorse they would still journey on together

have eaten at the table of life, imbibed Lancelot’s promise and fury

The bears duty, two cubs washed in milk saw the avalanche approaching

the smaller watched the mountain leaning, neither borrowed expectations

Grisley and grey he now writes natures tales so earnest and sorry 

The larger, buried in the August snow n’er tasted nectar with a honey paw 

‘Similitude’, the dancers pale dress so faint and brief holds a soft breast

They rise and fall, the troubadour a gallant Danseur, he dressed only in awe and esteem

Who lifts her like lilies on a flowered bough where only death they may greet so cold

The comparison of beauty is a silver mirror where pass the Hringhorni triumphal

    Interesting draw between the ship of the god and the seaside funeral for bin laden. As well your words are an almost celebration of the orgasmic release death gives us.
