The Mistress of America

Posted: November 14, 2010 by 7efellight in Epigrams, Poetry

1
The Gorgon, mistress of America,
Has flustered madness with technemata.

2
Manhattan‘s stream of sham is meant to strike
Observers mute and be Medusa-like.

3
The Gorgons, cognate in America,
From media-types derive in genera.

4
Like all three Gorgons are the networks kin,
Sororal reprobates who’ve saucy been.

5
Manhattan’s studios are the Gorgon’s stage
Where she maintains petrific tutorage.

6
Sororal corporations, sisterly
Like Gorgons, injure ingenuity.

7
On baleful, global efficacy bent,
The Gorgons glare to see ambition shent.

8
In studios the Gorgeian situation is
Where they commence petrific images.

9
Of flamboyant opium is Medusa full,
On screens to render your narcosis dull.

10
The Gorgons operation gouges out
Your wits, which gaga waxing, cease to doubt.

11
In their unstudious deadening of wit
The Gorgons no absurdities omit.

12
Brains are losing population as
Gorgonian cinema this country has.

13
All diminutions from this populace
Remove the brains or faculties displace.

14
The broadest vanishment of brains in vain
Americans extends TV’s domain.

15
These magic Gorgons stone your brains and leave
In muddled cognizance the most naive.

16
The Gorgons, mocking sapience, mean to crack
Your mental grasp and apprehension slack.

17
Unguarded somnolence, so openly
Misguided, with all Gorgons will agree.

18
The Gorgons, tempting your vulgarity,
With flagrant jests might flout great poetry

19
These mocker-Gorgons mean no good (in blunt
Discouragement of brains) with keen affront.

20
The Gorgons, jeering those who disagree,
Betray you with pictorial treachery.

21
Unguarded, watching, to the Gorgons you’re
Exposed, confiding like an open door.

22
To subjugate your sluggish judgment all
The Gorgons are on screens effectual.

23
Beholding Gorgons, your own hebetude
Beheads you, with their countenance endued.
