The Stepwise Palace - a FSVO sequence
Start | Index | About


Ascending now to a great banquet hall
We see a table, laden with a feast
Delicious in aroma: on each wall
Strange epiphytes and congeries of yeast
Serve us flesh not robbed from any beast,
A stew of trilobites, poached in white wine,
And many other species long deceased.
Here see art, science, Nature best combine,
And, with our end in sight, sit gratefully to dine.
