Metaphysical Dantesque

Created by Sharonlee Goodhand Imageweaver

Much I marvelled the wordsworthian dantean
I crave the mystical, magnificent metaphysical
In there stepped a supernal dystopianite
But only laughed the poet benthamite
Suddenly, I heard some sound horrifying
All my soul within me personifying
Back into my memories intimidating
Take thy tragic from out my heart!

Much I pondered this mythical textualist
That sorrow propagated such sorrow
‘It’s that poignancy,’ I muttered
My mind always strays to shadings, true
Remembering many daliesque, elvish hues wherein
The catastrophic contrition crying
And the profundity often decrying
I crave the melancholy, mozartian mischievousness
While I pondered, things fantastical and mystifying.

Below I shared the explanations behind my word usage and inspiration-

Metaphysical Poetry: highly intellectualized poetry marked by bold and ingenious conceits, incongruous imagery, complexity and subtlety of thought, frequent use of paradox, and often by deliberate harshness or rigidity of expression.

Dystopias are societies in cataclysmic decline, with characters who battle environmental ruin, technological control, and government oppression. 
A dystopianite, therefore, is a person belonging to such a society.

adjective

• relating to or consistent with the philosophical system of utilitarianism proposed by the English philosopher and jurist Jeremy Bentham.

“the Benthamite calculus of pains and pleasures”

noun

• a person who supports the philosophical system of utilitarianism proposed by the English philosopher and jurist Jeremy Bentham.

“for the Benthamite a natural right was both false and meaningless”

Bentham’s greatest happiness principle is the principle of utility, or “greatest happiness principle,” which forms the cornerstone of all Bentham’s thought. … His principle of utility regards good as that which produces the greatest amount of pleasure and the minimum amount of pain and evil as that which produces the most pain without the pleasure
