Look Again

Look Again

O how the mighty fall.
Jesus turns to Judas
and Hamlet to Macbeth.
Men fall off their pedestals
when love falls to its death.

(I probably wrote this in late 91 or some time in 1992)

I do like this poem - its sarcasm, bitterness and humour - it reminds me of Dorothy Parker's style of writing. Incidentally, she is one of my favourite writers and I was titillated to discover that we share the same birthday.
