Carol’d in the catacombs
of a university reading Greek
myths benumbed by
"Incidit in Scyllam, cupicns vitare Charybdim"
meaning little than one might get credit
for picking Scylla over Charbydis...

Innocent as a boy-scout botantist
studying the Venus fly trap
incurably incurious as to why
it would be called “Venus"
till soon the subtly-set trap
held wide as the Sargasso Sea
would snap shut on this unsuspecting shuttlecock.
