Tempest

Brave New World ?
cried the Epulon
We should all take Spice
and be gone.
Gods of War
do not need a gun,
Under the influence of
The One,
on Earth as in Heaven,
they are done..
Sweet Ariel works magic,
with her Wicca pentigon..
no longer needs to go,
and fit the walls of Jerricho ..
they will all tumble,
techno has the trigger
on humanity..ready to rumble.
the Globe's a Shake Sphere..
Fate has spun
what's dark is clear,
the race has run.

Interesting poem, full of great imagery. 

I did a little research on the word, Epulon. He was a tribal leader in Illyria. I've never heard of him before. I may not fully understand the poem, but I appreciate poems that are created from inspiration of other poems, or of warriors. I thought it was a fantasy poem initially. Then, I looked up Epulon and discovered a lot more about the subject. I'm not sure how to "rate" your poem, until I learn more about the topic. 

What is your inspiration for creating the poem?

Epulon (Epulo, Epulone, Aepulo; ruled 181 – 177 BC) was a king or tribal leader of Histria in northern Illyria.[1] Epulon conducted a series of wars against commanders sent by the Roman Republic during the Roman expansion of the first half of the 2nd century BC, until his death in 177 BC.

Iran, and the book by Aldous Huxley , Brave New World,  where people are bred by design to be slaves...that's fantastic info on Epulon..I hope my memory hasn't given me an incorrect spelling, books I read in my teens.You can see where a lot of modern films have pinched the story lines, man has never changed from a savage beast really, only technology eases the effort. Thankyou for taking an interest.

Huxley pinched it from Shakespear...such a fantastic writings of Will, nothing new under the sun, and he pinched that from The Bible.. a nation of plagiarism..
