The Madman Covets!
What drives the madman to covet?
Some say power, some say greed?
Some say desire, some say need?
But I say:
Flame meets flame in quenchless fires.
Forever and ever does his flesh burn,
As the heart is filled with yearning.
A rapture in the night—
Pain, and harmonic delight.
Ecstasy, sad and sweet!
Salt sea eyes beckoning: twisting like
Snakes, to vacant meadows
To allay the primitive desire.
