to be rendered to this

oh such a mighty shaft
once was
companion to kings
nay, emperors – titans
of might
philosophers tomes
did cogitate
monk’s meditations
old masters oils
manuscripts uncounted
gowns pirouette
silvered mirrors
did all illuminate
with wax wick
proud flame
of enlightenment
now
a lowly pastel candle
on a cake of birth mirth
I feel guttered
