*... The Keys of Schopen**... The Keys of Schopen by DarkSaxeBleu
Here, a puzzle of accurséd and damned:
what is in a Name and what in a Brand?
Schopén of belle letters shifts words with a spade:
three letters across now make out all his trade:
yet in very best days ~ when mind was ablaze ~
ideas and ideals were dissected and doubted
whilst their very author 'em scribbled and pouted:
his sword was the Word - Design was the game -
today just initials stand in for his name;
over a crossword he toils day and night,
his smarts went to hell as if hit by the blight:
for Cruciverbatim replaced Mary Sue
in misery found through conviction less sound -
a promising thinker's still missing a screw.
But since Earth is not Heaven, old Paradise Lost
reached hard back for him, at e-ve-ry cost:
new neighbour, a seamstress, in appealing a form
broke lovingly rules and bent teasingly norms:
in red room to the left, with blessed a crew
a soiree and a feast each evening she threw,
had a bash and a

EUNUS: The layout of this castle is plain and much like the one we meet in the Harry Potter saga: we have the library, alchemy and laboratory up in the towers – that's because these are spiritual actions of the soul – if the castle were a person – this is where its brain would be. Then we have living rooms, bedrooms, dining rooms – anything leisurely – where hearts and works of its people reside – everything comfortable where we can be open to each other and socialise, enjoy our earthly materialism, tastes and darn well show our riches off! ... And what about the dungeons? What would these stand for?
MINA: Our subconsciousness, what is hidden – what we don't wish to be faced with or what we don't like others to see – linked with embarrassment or displeasure like catacombs, morgue, or whatever has a part in crime and punishment, everyth

A vicious opponent has struck well indeed;
the man keeled right over, done is the deed:
behold the large table where all on his own
sits Holzt Werderbrünner, drunk to the bone;
slowly, like willow-tree, he forward did droop
and pretty much drowned in his own cabbage soup.
*Then - the door swung with creepy a creak,
two sparkly dark eyes had a good peek ...*
Hand rushed to his neck and snatched him right out,
then reached for his pulse in shock and in doubt:
''Ye gods,'' says Salieri, ''what news to behold!
To die of sour cabbage instead of a cold!
Nay, can't have that on my Grand Paris Tour -
I will think of something, I will find The Cure!''
He tried the enchantments, blood letting regime,
the cream of the tiger, inhaling the steam,
an enema running with rum and with gin
and right at the end ~ a ripe punch on the chin.
... The body was supple, plumpish and rife -
but what else could he do to bring it to life?
*He opens the window ...*

Cave ab homine unius libri ... "We are all one. Ours is not a better way, ours is merely another way." ~ Neale Donald Walsch
Had he but spar'd his Tongue and Pen, He might have rose like other Men:
But, Power was never in his Thought; And, Wealth he valu'd not a Groat:
Ingratitude he often found, And pity'd those who meant the Wound:
But, kept the Tenor of his Mind, To merit well of human Kind:
Nor made a Sacrifice of those Who still were true, to please his Foes.

''... Best way to come to the heart of the matter is to stick a knife into it.''
''You mean to say exactly what you know; but in reality you are giving expression to what is, in all essential particulars, an hypothesis. You do not KNOW it at all; it is nothing but an hypothesis rapidly framed in your own mind. And it is an hypothesis founded on a long train of inductions and deductions.'' ~ T. H. Huxley.
''Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities. Quand la populance se mele de raisonner, tout est perdu.'' (Reason can justify everything - it is its winning trait - and a deadly flaw ...)
