Mr. Cogito: Of Hell and Hens

Pandemonium

John Martin, Pandemonium, 1841

Someone tell me

Am I a bad taste hen

Clucking over a

Comical egg

 

I will become a

Psyche-piercing harpy

Clucking over her

Monstrous chick

 

Such is my faith

Or audacity—

 

Should my lord

Agni be Lucifer

 

I will ask for the smallest window

In rising

Pandemonium

 

Jewel toned stained glass

In his glory
