How I sometimes (often?) feel about civilization- Reworked (second portion added) according to a great suggestion from @skye!

Polis

It reeked of stale death Yet I ate it whole Unknowing how long It sat salt preserved Decay's mark hidden

And I now employed As emptying vat Am spread as fodder About the Beast to Chew up the whole world

Eater of tongues and Hearts, of thoughts and hopes Overflowing with Falsified comforts At hosts' set table

Babel holds not tongues Nor Babylon, hearts Nor Alexandria, thoughts Nor Ghiza, hopes Enough to sate the

Yet direction do You offer up well Ordered rows provide To soils fallow Waiting for a seed

Seeing more than Sun Wanting more than winds Needing more than space To find fitting place Along which to burgeon

Guider of metals And plants, of myths and Minds seeking purpose And wishing to hear Answers false and true

Vulcan casts metals Terra births new plants Apollo weaves myths Athena fills minds So your will is know
