The Atrabilious Recluse

Under the glittering stars of delight
The lunatics laughed and loitered away
Stupid in their celebrating stature
Off they made merry and swindled away

They drank from the cup of idiocy
And danced in the high of sparkled spirit
Careless, carefree individual smiles
All combined in a frenzy minute

Aloft upon the mighty mountain
Sat he who triumphed and reached the peak
Watched from the golden summit seat
Wincing at every hysteric happy shriek

Said “Fools, to merry in melancholy”
Watching down from the pinnacle with amuse
“Fools, to shut their eyes against reality”
Not realizing he was the atrabilious recluse

  2. All of us are one time or the other

    And out of the darkness, the Zombie did call
    True pain and suffering he brought to them all
    Away ran the children to hide in their beds,
    for fear that the devil would chop off their heads


    We all are...
