An Ode to hidden demons

An Ode to hidden demons

Far beneath the surface fair
Inside the darkness, hidden there,
Away from sight of man or beast,
Lie treasures uncounted,
Awaiting release.

Deep inside the mind and soul
Inspired by the worldly foe,
Fear of success rises fierce and forbidding,
March backwards — retreat!
Install the police!

Forever buried in darkened caves
Bubbling and burning in righteous waves
The goals of art stay empty and shallow
Unmet and ill-founded
Arrested, impounded.

Enter then a hero’s mentor
Filled with secrets of coaches’ candour,
Shining a light on the ogres and beasts,
Some you installed,
Some you still feed!

What’s a creator supposed to do
To cobble together half a clue
And exit from this crazy prison?
Oh see, says mentor,
Read this vision:
