Lord of the Maenads
by Jacki Moss
Age Group: Adult
The dying god lies finally down, quite
ripe for the forthcoming frenzy.
His Maenads rush forward, rabid to ravage him,
Frenzied as fiends posessed by fatal fervor,
Tearing sugary, purple flesh from twisted vine.
Lost in lust, flailing frenzied limbs with longing,
The Bacchanals flay fresh flesh from their Lord,
Bidding him to rise, ravaged and ready
Rejuvinated for the wine-and-dine
With his be-vined, divine companions.
Author's Notes: This was inspired by a Dionysian sacred drama.
Author's Location: Midland, Ontario
