RAT TRAP SATRAP a poem

Rat Trap Satrap

Misering the counted days
Living in a zero sum haze
Rat trap satrap
Prince of the atheist craze

Puzzling the whodunit maze
With your TV detective ways
Pink Panther answers
And two-bit gumshoe dossiers

But there’s warp within the weave
Look up quick before you leave
At the apogee tapestry
It’s zero grieve and all vive

Infinite numbers that are odd
Even too eternal esplanade
Sacerdotal grand total
The unbound is not for naught

Receding when approached
The most sacred mysteries
Will not be encroached
Sanest of all insanities
To lose oneself and gain a soul


“Hey Mitch, what’s this poetry thing all about?” I want to collaborate with Blue Öyster Cult and I’m hoping the Öyster Boys will think this would make a good lyric.

Did you know I wrote a paranormal/mystery/romance book inspired by Blue Öyster Cult’s lyrical themes?  Click here to download it here for free!
