    Default Angelos Sikelianos Drank Lysol (CTG)

    Angelos Sikelianos Drank Lysol

    Angelos Sikelianos failed to expire
    like Socrates by imbibing hemlock
    -- the poisoned cup for
    activist Greek philosophers.
    No, he died from sipping Lysol,
    mistaking it for medicine

    -- such an ignoble end for
    modern Greece's lyrical poet!
    A low and cheap disinfectant
    that assails the nostrils,
    sweetener of urban water closets
    and mountain farmers' out-houses!

    Angelos Sikelianos is gone,
    and Lysol is the poet's assassin!
    Angelos has been stolen from us!
    Let us congregate to drink ouzo
    in the olive groves of his legacy!

    It wasn't the sonnet
    wot done it
    not any rhyme
    the culprit this time
    no verse, I am told
    laid this poet out cold

    rely, we may well
    on our own sense of smell
    but this poet, a fount of description
    fatally mistook his prescription
    for alas, not even foul odour
    could save this particular oder
