“NOVELA!” a poem FRIDAY, 22 Feb 2019
A novelty gene? Is it wearing thin?
Come! Talk with me – about The Wages of Sin:
Is it NOVELa!? or – just-new? In-other-dark-ages,
The Holy Spirit – resided strong in The Sages,
Who left society, so-they-might-avoid-the-hassle,
Of being too novel (and-being-called-an-a-a – – h – – e)!
It’s just about MUTATIONS! Slow – and sure,
Which is – sometimes: quicker-for-him or maybe-for-her?
A DNA twist? to reverse “easy death?”
The chicks in Russia, like The Czar’s sweet wife?
Her fond attraction, brought-him much strife!
A little TOO s-xy can-be a dangerous thing?
When-you’re-dealing-with A JEALOUS KING!
Mutating? IMPROVEMENT? Well! Sometimes-it’s-said:
But, if labeled as “different,” you’re-as-good as dead!
Now there’s a comic book craze, of mutant heroes!
It’s-clear – that-mutants weren’t-friends-of-Nero’s;
He burned down The Empire, to root out Vampires!
Deathless creatures? Well, maybe big fires,
Can put an end – to Mutant Witches,
Even if they’re benevolent – and just dig ditches,
And stay-out-[of]-the-way – of THE “Mainstream,
Society!” They’re-liable NOT – to join “the team,”
Lest they demonstrate – too many powers,
In EVERYTHING! [for-then, The Clergy cowers!]
“He did ALL things well!” WELL, the- advantage-was-“clear,”
But HOLY SPIRIT NOVELA is NAUGHT to fear! 🙂 – Rest easy, Sports’ Fans!
And, even today, in India, for example,
If a sage comes by – they give him ample,
Food! Yes, the villagers – feed him up well,
To-determine IF – he’s of Heaven or Hell!
For, if he is genuine, he’ll eat and eat,
And never put on weight – ’cause he loves to treat,
EVERYONE – to blessings! And more come out,
If he eats a lot – and never gets stout!!!
