Ithaka


Signifying home & relief from hardship albeit by not very much
Ithaka is a hard, rugged, little island like many other such
To which nostos, toois a Siren, so all kleos remind
We sojourn as Cyclops, return wholly blind.
Envoi-

Since what it shadowed was last harrowed & sheltered Helen raped
Prince! Every Oikos is an Egypt no Sphinx has escaped
