The seed of endymion

The seed of endymion

or how most great achievements
stem from accidental discoveries

Two beauties are a joy for ever
Ejaculated keats
Lusting in ecstasy towards
Well-breasted fanny brawne

No no my dearest john
Sighed fanny
Facing the quivering man
You’ve got it wrong – from where i am
She whispered – creeping
Downwards with her hands
It’s better said
A thing of beauty is a joy for ever

The poet leapt with pleasure
At such passionate emendation
He gave in gracefully to what she craved
And in a flash endymion was conceived

And on the page
This brawny breast-fed line
Has stood out boldly ever since
