Orpheus And The Blind Prophet

The Mayoralty of Macedon
Second Prelude. Click on Lyra to listen.

Or take a trip across the styx with Orpheus' lyre and your mouse's clicks.

Duet: n. The continual resolution and renewal of dissonance.

I've heard about that under another name, Weirsdo. Banking?

I think that's cacaphony, RBUD.

The souza is gone. The souzaphone remains.

Orpheus got off cheap, didn't he? I think it is ok to say that Teiresias was happy to see Orpheus because it is a misunderstanding that we can see with our eyes only.

I loved your Teiresias imitaion.

Doug said...

Thanks, Ariel. Good point about sight and a good example of that point.

“I call you to duty and not to a tryst.
Your honor requires a cause.
Revered as an oracle philanthropist,
A polysyllabic owl without claws,
Your lessons deserve a nimble accompanist"

Wow, this is all great stuff, bravo!

Thanks, Actonbell. It's good to have the literati over here.
