Wampums Poem Example

Garbled Vision

As Samuel saw vaulted Xanadu of Kublai Khan fame
In smoke-filled corridors of sweat-drenched Opium-eaters
Did I spy a vision so surreal as to render all my sentient senses to nought
And to replace them with a miasma of arcane thoughts.

I glimpsed of things most unimagined through vaporous clouds
Of effulgent smoke from wampums more confusing 
than the peace of amity that it connoted.
Through numbing  mind yet not fully suppressed 
I beheld   many-pillared corridors in a dazzling sequence
Of multi-hued columns - Doric, Ionian and Corinthian.

And through this tortuous labyrinthine maze ran
A languorous  limpid stream off a meander 
From an ox-bow lake, with a murmurous  mutter
As it hop scotched the rifts on the floor.

With Cyclopean vision, floating wraith-like, in the distance
I beheld a dazzling high-domed hall,
The dazzle from a myriad gorgeous maidens
Each draped in dresses so diaphanous as to defy its definition!

And  a prima donna sang in sonorous counterpoint to the susurration of the stream. 

From up on high like a falcon flighted,
In anachronistic contrast I verily beheld
A jeaned and jacketed  - Angelina Jolie!

It was then that I confirmed to myself -
My mind had truly busted!
