Sage Homme

These are the poems of Eliot
By the Uranian Muse begot;
A Man their Mother was,
A Muse their Sire.

How did the printed Infancies result
From Nuptials thus doubly difficult?

If you must needs enquire
Know diligent Reader
That on each Occasion
Ezra performed the Caesarean Operation.

Cauls and grave clothes he brings,
Fortune's outrageous stings,
About which odour clings,
Of putrefaction ,
Bleichstein's dank rotting clothes
Affect the dainty nose,
He speaks of common woes
Deploring action .

He writes of A.B.C.s
And flaxseed poultices,
Observing fate's hard decrees
Sans satisfaction;
Breeding of animals,
Humans and cannibals,
But above all else of smells
Without attraction

Vates cum fistula

It is after all a grrrreat littttttterary period.
Thanks for the Aggymemnon.
