by Robert Paul Gass (aka Imagines Vinco aka Ultionem Vinco)
The nelson half as base for arm behind
To twist for straining tendon basket wove
In shoulder pad to boost invading bind
Of threads attached to brain's neurotic cove.
The baskets two with pretzel hold the world
Of victims under oaths of slope to fall
And tugging armlets sends the thunder hurled
To roots of cells exploding bloody maul.
Cerebral cortex sides to push the force
On temples pinned and dispositors wield
The lesions over will bereft of source
As autonomic stem is forced to yield.
The knots in basket cases tighten strain
And oaths from cove release the right of Cain.
