These Late Skirmishes

Edward Rehmus by the late Edward Rehmus

Discern some little light at least
in ancient secret hieroglyphs
And see them snatched away by Academe —
as false!

Or chance upon the key to Death
and you'll be warned to look away
to Life because Death is

Discover sainthood within yourself
and they'll say no, that's wicked
only Christ is God and you are

Who are these sudden savants,
unwanted advisors of ubiquity,
saying our gumption is no more than chutzpah?
