Rose coloured glasses

Controversial figure (Shrine)

Divisive

They said about him

As though everything he’s uttered

Was significant

Truthful

Rather than the more realistic

Fragments of genuity

That floated equally with falsity

And exaggeration

Inconsistency’s

And the substandard.

Polarising, they decried

To the Heavens

And the literary field

Abruptly littered with his name

Embedded eternally

Since his passing

Though barely mentioned before

Like a cockroach

In an acclaimed gallery.

Now every generation

Sprouts from him

(as thy would have it)

If only he were here

To acknowledge the acceptance.

Bravo! What a mighty writer!
