Life of the Cannibal

Life of the Cannibal
(For the Exile)

Examined in conic section the cannibal
Proves to be of conscience most frangible
Of spirit arguably quite peaceable and presidential 
Of philosophy neither elohist nor yahwist yet indefatigable
Of brawn and brain a syzygy of anima and animus
In fact a kind of omnibus yet yet
No more welcome in respectable circles
Than Guildenstern and Rosencrantz in Denmark
Or Edwin Rist* empty suitcase in hand
In any museum of natural history in Europe

*alias, the Feather Thief
