Un Forgeron (A Blacksmith) ~ 1833 ~ Eugène Delacroix
 

Still trading on past vanities;
cursing cold-forged molten shackles
wrapped around fresh firescaled ankles,
 

left limping toward posterity.
Adorned, admired, yet brain cross-wired,
mouth mired in mulched profanity.
 

Climactic rise of peers rankles;
flame fading on past vanities.
