Furlough from Hell

Furlough from Hell


How many tears are enough to shed
To mourn the wholesale waste of genius?
How many quick and painless deaths
To equal a lifetime wracked by torment?
How vast and great a fortune tossed away
To pay back a Titan chained for decades?
How great a choir of how many voices
To laud the respite from endless horrors?
Is a mere quietly-breathed sigh of relief enough
When the sword of Damocles dangles still above?
