through the smoke there came a vision…

b5033a

through the smoke there came a vision
foggy first but then quite clear
torn between the gold and senses
raining down one crystal tear

screaming out, so little followed
only the furies do you send
blind leading blind over the edge
you look about and call these friends

squander all this useless emotion
fanned by winds of insincere
traveling into the depths of Hades
led on by an empty shallow cheer.

pulled threw the thickets by a chariot
with no one at the reins
surrounded by black that masquerades as white
the driver’s gone insane…
