Question: Comments on a poem about the love of a poet's words!?
The throng gathers and
waits, eager to listen
as at the shrine
for Apollo at Delphi!.

An allegory will come
from the lips of this god,
prophetic and
in nature!.

the crowd observes
knit cap of green
emerging from behind
a shroud!.

speak to us,
Oracle of Truth,
your words we clamber
to hear!.

Make wrongs right,
turn ugliness
into beauty,
create life
where only death
is seen!.

Awaken those lost in
deep sleep!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:

The vapors of Delphi
and a carnivores intent
at a seemingly dirty old man
ranting verse of darkness
that unseemly side of existence
that we avoid on our way to work

How is this moldy knit
grown into my skin
with its humor Black!?
Have I been infected
with its decay!?

Rancid Pot pies
on unkempt pubic hair
and sausage dipped in cheap vodka
unbathed by the heights of mankind
can be found in the vulgar
ink of an artist!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
