FANATIC

Secret doubt concealed
in a fanatic, dense mind
over confidence exposes
borne of cosmic strife
wars in heaven, Olympus
torn, veil parted, ladies
weep, old men beseech
towers fall, ivory bleach
whitens all, underworld
rivers flow, Orphic hymns
brings, Eurydice reborn
into union, of enthusiasm
Jason safely beyond, Siren
songs, aided by Orpheus
as messengers visited
a sacred wood, none of us
alone, leaving dark mists
people pointing fingers
in derision, mockery blind
not sure if we are really, fine.
