Epidermal Macabre Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


Indelicate is he who loathesA
The aspect of his fleshy clothesA
The flying fabric stitched on boneB
The vesture of the skeletonC
The garment neither fur nor hairD
The cloak of evil and despairD
The veil long violated byE
Caresses of the hand and eyeE
Yet such is my unseemlinessA
I hate my epidermal dressA
The savage blood's obscenityF
The rags of my anatomyF
And willingly would I dispenseA
With false accouterments of senseA
To sleep immodestly a mostG
Incarnadine and carnal ghostG
