on the altar of the Universe
24th March, 2018 Writers

         The call (i)



Come you all, young and old

pauper,rich,farmer,saint.

submit your presence 

to the Sun's scrutiny

ON THE ALTAR OF THE UNIVERSE.


Bring forth offerings

from all your trade,

Food,coin,gold& bounties

place them all for the Earth's full gaze.

.

     The verdict (ii)

.


Nude-- all you

before the Universal jury

before Nature, incorruptible witness.


Mean Hour unveils the bitterest,

the neutral sky trumpets the sour.

No crony amongst the competent panel.


Echo and echo:

self truthfulness is the ultimate gift.

smoke ascends from it.


No Hip hip hip...

Hypocrisy!

On the altar of the Universe...
