Demonstratives…

***

I’m a wizard mind you… Says the wizard… Pulling his skull cloak… Tight about his scrawny shoulders… Can you summon demons, wizard?… Asks the warrior… From astride his horse… Why yeas!… Shouts the wizard… Harm my flesh… And I will summon a demon… More ferocious… Than all in hell!… Fortunately for us… This is hardly likely… To be a Chinese fire-demon… But Saul Judd… Was correct in his assertion… That the skeleton in the burial mound… Was a giant… Given that his sword was later described as Atlantean… This pretty much means… That the Atlanteans were… In fact, also, the giants!

***

Which clears up… A lot… And renders much… Toing and froing… Amongst the pages… Of the biblical texts… Fairly redundant… If only we had been this clued up… Much earlier… Years, possibly decades may have been salvaged… From the tip… Of confusions… Which pass for memory… In the souls… Of the soon to die… Still, it passes the time… While we wait… For the inevitable… Swish of the scythe… Will we still be flummoxed… By the apparent incongruity… Of Games?… As the slippery blade… Arches through its terrible trajectory… And are any outstanding queries… Cleared up before you fall to rest?

***

It seems unlikely… Somehow… Which is a pity… But there is at least one thing… To come out of the picaresque ramblings… Which eventually led… To the selection of Tripitaka… As the pilgrimage lead… To banish demons… It is only necessary… To still the mind… His name… Is also the name of the sacred scrolls… After which he quests… And that would make our hero… Demos… Just as well then… That he has chosen to go… On a pilgrimage… Rather than… A demonstration… See how cunning they are… Their projections are built… Into the very words… Which are ascribed… To grant us our recompense.

 

We'd love to hear from you...
