PK POETRY LIST - ANTHOLOGY

 

 

Selwyn Pritchard

 

 

In The Sleep of Reason

 

 Like an owl in the ruins of truth I lament

Not the embarrassments of youth

Nor agonies of middle age

But that In my dotage I should see

The triumph of demagoguery

Merciless aggression and the future

Repeating the past

 

Dawn’s too far away

 

Let my voice trouble

The glutted sleep

Of the righteous.
