Manifested from the roots of Germanic imagination exist I
Pagan rhythmic ritualistic explosions of color and sound
I am the god of prowess, Austri - the spirit of light
And annually found fit to be re-crowned.

To inseminate the goddess of fertility Ostara each season
A burden I willfully and gladly will bear
With the fanfare and gravity of generations of kings
Anthropomorph into the March Hare

My function is to polish, embellish and deliver
For as long as I remember, for as far back as I know
Armored impregnated ovum to make-believe children
To never ever question the status quo.

A make-believe world existing within our own minds
A fantasy world filled with lessons and morals
A utopia of sorts to balance the hatred
A paradise sought like never before

Imagine then the weight of the shock of my life
While vacationing off-season adjacent my wife
To discover a crack in the thin veil's seal
To find that that make-believe world was real!

LOL Yep... I will be here more often I suspect to rant and spew my mindless dribble. I am single once again and well... I'll have more time on my hands.

I see that - was replying but I can't find that picture of myself "looking in" my window from outside, a much needed component to my reply.

Ah well, maybe next time. I'll post without it.

Did you ever manage to find the time to read the book "American Gods"?

I did, thank you! I found it a haunting departure from Stardust (and even heard rumors of a movie with Michael Caine) and while initially enamored by the characters, but was disappointed with how it ended. I think my mother even read it too...

It was quite different. I enjoyed it though. Of course, there are very few books I've completed that I didn't enjoy. I have put down several that were just to painful to finish.
