Dune Mythology

benign mythology unleashed
in fabled Dune by spiced melange
imagination freed – the parody
of Mahdi

soon to be a spindle
of the angst
which played on ancient words
foretelling doom

suspense in agony
a clamour for the truth
while tending peace between
the factions left estranged

in wars of space and reverence
of relevance – of unity
and commonsense
impending battles of defence

there is no place to linger on
and ask belief beyond the means
of evidence –
that past is gone – and yet we breed
