Myrmidon and Unicorns

Demure myrmidon
Just don’t occur
In nature
(To say demure myrmidon
That is, to say a mythical
Much like an unicorn)
To say they ever did is to

Deride the ancient Greeks
And also modern despots
(With no implication that
They are the same thing)
Would be diligent
To prevent slander
The results of understanding
The myrmidon
May at times leave you feeling
That you are an esteemed funambulist

At best it is likely
Only hypnopompic
And yeah,
That’s kinda sad
For you and you and you

Because it is exactly
That self same state
That resulted in this
Poem pour vous!
