Inverse

In doleful tones upon my ears

The captured expression of our mutual fears

S and G with prophets’ words – on subway walls

Where the silence’s sound melancholic falls

Should we seek instead – joyful verse?

Clinging to some playful inverse?

G and S and their modern major-general

Tunes whistled from – nonsense Pinafore infernal

Shall we reverse?

Which shall be worse?

S and G dark – but so full of meaning

G and S light -but intellectually demeaning

Is the inverse

Blessing or curse?
