Transcendence

or Above and Beyond the Tragical Reality of Existence Somewhere Over the Rainbow in Proximity to the Castles in the Air "A man may fish with the worm that hath eat of a king, and eat of the fish that hath fed of that worm." --a tongue-twister by the Hamlet of Tragedy "Each transcendence ultimately goes up in smoke--a phenomenon known as 'gas'." --a maxim by the poet of Reality Why, Judge! What are you sucking on here now? The cabin but a muck of scribbling fond! If it be yet again your sacred cow-- This instant shall I drain that silly pond! Your cow does nothing, Judge, but chew on grass-- Which generates a mass of gas and dung-- Which generates a mass of grass and gas-- Which generates your mess of pickled tongue-- Your fishies hooked and cooked this afternoon-- Your froggies fried--your rubber ducky meat-- Your supper slops of bourbon-grazed raccoon-- And all your fishing worms that fool talk eat! So get on home and cut the hogwash out-- Then slit the piggy's throat for jellied snout! January 7, 2022 Shakespearean Sonnet "Transcendence" Edward Ibeh
