In Memoriam Wilde

A Poem by George Coombs
"

concerning a favorite writer of mine

"

In Memoriam " Oscar Wilde


now…

from the depths

he cries…

beautiful, vulnerable

mind abused

incarcerated by judicial ignorance…


prison is a monstrous evil

inflicted on him

who lived the

love that

dare not

speak its

name”


still…

long after his final rest the

vile deeds like poison weeds

bloom well in prison air”

truth lays murdered

by lust for

a result…


gentle oscar

your words

flower in pure soil

rest in peace

you are

free

indeed

now…

Thankyou Rene
This is indeed a lovely tribute to Oscar Wilde, a man out of his time. Sensitively written with kind sentiments. How badly people who are 'different', can be treated, even today! Well written.
