Apollo's Serpent ((or, 'Feast of the Dogs )(a poem))


Apollo’s Serpent
("Feast of the Dogs")

Spun into a thick and dark web
By the voice of Apollo’s serpent
On the day of my birth
For great hopes and triumphs,
I became a poet!
Then like the swift wrap of a wind
Because of truth’s evil end
Cancelled alike by the god’s
And their tyrants
Those – all men honor…
Thus, I was cast:
To the House of Hades,
For the Feast of the Dogs…
