eulogy

Born and bred on Sunday, so fair and brisk, 
With life's bet both just and sure, to unmask
The hidden gem, I leapt on horizons upon horizons; 
So I crucify the devil with reasons, and defy its sons. 

Lived on Tuesday and Thur'day-ne'er sought a name, 
Drank of my sweat and blood, even in life's windstorm, 
Yet chewed they our candy and at us threw the yawns,
So I crucify the devil with reasons, and defy its sons. 

Crème de la crème of a lofty village, a taste of Monday gold, 
Tame, timid, reverend-for which guns and distress billow'd, 
See, clean hands, pure heart, with chasms of pains, 
So I crucify the devil with reasons, and defy its sons. 

When's-day-when the obituary opened, a cartoon was drawn, 
Sketchy and messed up-smitten by the gods-toned down, 
Gods were quiet, and men quiet, and without reasons, 
So I crucify the devil with reasons, and defy its sons. 

On Saturday sitting in the tomb-land of the living dead-, 
An open prison- by wires, walls, crowds and privation afflicted-, 
Refinement and good life became overarched visions, 
So I crucify the devil with reasons, and defy its sons. 

Morning sunset! Who shall bear me beyond the bound
Of human and gods' ineptness? For I'm naught 'n moribund, 
Gods have given up, men have auctioned my gowns,
So I even crucify the devil with reasons, and defy its sons.
