ATHENA [for A Knight in Shining Sweatervest]

O she sprang
from the godhead
fully grown –
indeed fully armed
and fully dressed
so there’d be no doubt
she was metaphor
incarnate – Truth!
Truth, Truth, Truth Truth –
let Reason clang forth
like four dozen carillion bells
let their sweet swells drown out
the half-truths and smarmy lies
and loopholes [noosed in ties]
Let the owl hoot to herald
a new here and now
let natural love win out
…somehow
