The West

 

Floats in
regnant style

On a Titanic
of Hubris

in a Sea
of Delusion

primping all
the while

*

The currents
they be
churning

hurling
icebergs
in their flow

*

And the Fates
loom up
closer

firing
shots
across her bow

but still
will she
meander

misprizing what
she
must know

*


It’s ever
the way
with hubris

it’s the way
such things
go

*

Pity the
poor
Titanic

strayed so
far
from shore

if pride
goeth
before a fall

what might
hubris go
before?
