170. Poetry enthroned

There is no need for any other law than poetry,
make her the Queen of all existence in her everlasting glory,
that must outlast all that junk called vanity and ugliness
which only show up in this world to pester and pollute it
for no other good than tragedy,
the trap which all humanity so enthusiastically marches into
fooled by the deceivers of short-sightedness and fickle profit
for which sake man drowns himself in any madness and insanity
most willingly - and hardly sees himself through even afterwards.
But poetry remains, with beauty and idealism as champions,
the last romantic hero isn't even born yet and shall never be,
for they belong to Poetry's and Beauty's court of everlasting light
and can't be even tempted from their sovereignty to step down
to follow suit with this demented, ugly, sick and decayed world
which politicians think they rule, unable to get into their thick heads
that Politics is nothing but the Madness Greenhouse of Megalomania
where there are no other masters running the asylum
than the vainest power of them all,
the ultimately and completely egoistic opportunist's self-destructiveness.

Poetry indeed remains with beauty and idealism. For sure it will outlast every other thing that has to do urgliness and vanities. Have you taken time to read the Psalms and Proverbs of the Bible? Beauty is made manifest in them.
Keep on writing wonderful poems, I appreciate this one with a big thank you.
