Vegetarian non resistant free thinker in ethics

Vegetarian non resistant free thinker in ethics a Christian
Orator apt at the rhine stone rhythm of Ingersoll.
Carnivorous avenger believer and pagan.
Continent promiscuous changeable treacherous vain
Proud with the pride that makes struggle a thing for laughter
With heart cored out by the worm of theatric despair
Wearing the coat of indifference to hide the shame of defeat
I child of the abolitionist idealism
A sort of Brand in a birth of half and half.
What other thing could happen when I defended
The patriot scamps who burned the court house
That Spoon River might have a new one
Than plead them guilty? When Kinsey Keene drove through
The card board mask of my life with a spear of light
What could I do but slink away like the beast of myself
Which I raised from a whelp to a corner and growl?
The pyramid of my life was nought but a dune
Barren and formless spoiled at last by the storm..
