Weathervane Glory

some people some day
will get together and
weld a great white egret
out of what ever ideas
are still left over
and they will seat it some
where and other
people will fight over
it or rather fight over
what they think it
may or may not
represent

          [the egret being
          too itself to see
          its own evil]

and
at some point it
will be cast down by
some one full of

weathervane glory or
an excess of relativity

there is some thing to
be said for equivocacy
          some other time
          by some one else.



The pun of ‘whether vainglory’ and ‘weathervane glory’ was a tough one and I don’t know if it came across well.
