Last Laugh…


The New European,

in need of a costume

rifles through the storehouse of history

but finds none that quite fit…


We may consider the twenty-first century (common age)

with regard to these wayward

predilections of style…


In vain, we parade ourselves as Romantic,

or Baroque, or…

But, alas, nothing now suits us.


The spirit, being spirit,

spies an advantage in this,

our despair.


We are a fledgling age of Carnival,

in our ill-fitting garb

we make ready to take to the World Stage…


As Buffoons of God!
