The Lost World Of The Arts: 5 Poems
Author: Colin Stewart


The lethargic ballet:

It seemed utterly pointless to dance on your toes
and this conspiratorial uprising added to his woes
as a frazzled choreographer was caught up in the throes
when the corps de ballet gathered for a lethargic pose!


The absent-minded chorus:

Liberations and libations have altered the course
ejecting this chorus with such force
out of a song in a transitional state
by those who were distracted by their mental state!


The silent aria:

It was once considered the apotheosis of good taste
but now the libretto has been laid to waste
with an aria dissolved by a silent protest
as delivered by a mime and put to rest!


Ghosts in a Jukebox:

These haunted melodies for a dime
speak of transgressions and a bloody crime
that were committed with a reckless heresy
and to reside here in merciless memory!


Profane poetry:

This poetry has stood the test of time
unveiled on this wall in eternal rhyme
shattering man's legacy with ill-repute
in this unfortunate coda to his one-finger salute!
