a tarnished holy grail…

the chalice
had
sharp broken edges
on
its rim
with
stains
of
blood
along
it’s stem
a
shylock merchant
said
it was safe
to
drink from
and
that the nectar
at
the bottom
was
an elixir
surely
used
by
midas
tho
the pungent
smell
of
death
permeated
the air
around
it
the odorous decay
of
souls
but
greed’s disciples
grasped
the chalice
and
drank
hoping
to
taste
the elixir
and
possess
their golden dreams
but
the chalice
only
contained
the
blood
of
fools
