Poem - Alpha Narcissus (2017) - Rob Marsh

The great inspiring breather
hovers over the world in chains
rasping he, 
foul in- and ex-clusion
to former saints deranged, 
cag-ed with measure and hurl-ed offstage
by Newton, Descartes, and Faraday
Nietzsche stood up and with fervour proclaimed
"God is dead!", yet all was the same
God merely grabbed up another false name
Invisible Hand of Capitalist Fame
and played again the same old game
of sending
his numerous sons insane.
- Rob Marsh, Ferntree Gully
