Oscar With His Eyes Out
Oscar with his eyes out mutters flings his speech beyond the wall and dies with subtle satisfaction. Sheep shed tears for nimble goats Dionysus in shaggy beard then leave rebuked forever banned. Simple shops hide quiet still beyond the masks and party favors, capital memorium the image swayed; and Oscar with his eyes out triumphs turns reluctant spokesman for the bright ones, tumbles in his grave.
