Swift re-blog as research reveals yet again ‘on some readers; not on others’! It’ll come up twice now!
In perfect calligraphy the calfskin parchment almost complete
The Book of Everything translated from the Ancient Greek
could be read using microscope, telescope or naked eye, yet
a guaranteed ‘glaze over’ for villager congregations far and wide
two decades in the making since Papal Instruction at last a near reality
The tiniest drop of iron gall ink nose dives from the swan feather quill
‘Hell and damnation’ cries the portly, flagellated friar
as the Norseman puts him to the sword
A very Dark Age day!
From the highest branches they evolved
those beyond creations destitute claim
blind to vertigo, dancing upon volcano lips
quaking at only thunderbolts and lightning strikes
Charcoal and chalk
upon limestone walls
spear and flame
gather and hunt
warriors without mercy
ritual virgin offerings
to the unseen Illustrious
maybe not very good hunters?
