Analyze This

if the verse is terse, kept quite calm and clean as a whistle

then why does it hold such violent meaning, such furious potential?

like a stalking panther, it holds tremendous power but does not exercise it

not yet, too soon, hold on, just wait

beyond the cellar door lies the jabberwocky

crying tearing tears from a conk to the conch

he swears he could eat the horse he rode in on

clip clopping, it will no more

this barking dogwood tree is a sanctuary

and beneath its overbearing foreshadow

you follow this non sequitor:

kill them all
