Sibyl, my governess
Diverted and adrift
What prophecy bound by your circle
Sputters from my lips?
Talk to me
As I think aloud
Scribbling frantic script
In open court
Without reserve
In the face of this eclipse

The dark diviner strikes a light
And trees of knowledge burn
Wrangling augurs glimpse the truth
That wiser fools unlearn
Second sight Cassandra
Ostracized and spurned
Mantic maenad chaperone
Delirium confirmed
If there is nothing more to be said
Which way do I turn?
