bin laden declares victory

humpty dumpty sat
on a wall eating
his curd & whey
hey diddle diddle

he had a great
fall

the center
cannot hold. the
worst are filled
with passionate
intensity

the king
impertinent sits
on his high
throne

he who would
rule the
world

absolute power corrupts
the monkey chased the
absolutely
weasel

the perfect tragic
character is a man who is
not eminently good & just, yet
whose misfortune is brought about
by some error or
weakness

& hubris is the cause
of this man’s
prideful
sputtering
decline.

falling towers
jerusalem athens alexandria
vienna london
unreal

alive or dead,
bin laden declares
victory
