Despair's advantage is achieved

Despair’s advantage is achieved
By suffering Despair
To be assisted of Reverse
One must Reverse have bore

The Worthiness of Suffering like
The Worthiness of Death
Is ascertained by tasting

As can no other Mouth

Of Savors make us conscious
As did ourselves partake
Affliction feels impalpable
Until Ourselves are struck
