the poet’s burden

I will venture downward
into the darkest thoughts of man;
free ideas which have sunken
to the deepest depths of quick sand

Thoughts which remain ancient and covered in tar,
these disfigured monsters repressed our glory.
The poet's burden is to travel further,
find these abominates, and tell their story.
