“Vi(r)gilant” Friday Flash 55
My rearing more classical
I never understood why
you shouldn’t look a gift horse
in the mouth.
Especially if you wanted
to scope out
I imagined peering down the maned
gullet, muzzle cocked, as I stood upon
a chair in High School English, faces
in the dark chest cavity torchlit,
55 true and slightly toothless words for the wonderful (and very tricky) G-Man. Have a great week-end!
PS – Virgil here is author of the Aeneid, which, along with Homer’s Odyssey, is the main source of Trojan Horse story. I had to read the Aeneid in college, not high school, but I learned the story well before college – maybe even from cartoons! (As always, all rights reserved on drawings as well as words.
