The Book of Galahad
Spicer on Merlin
"We're off to see the Wizard, the wonderful Wizard of Oz."
Damned Australians marching into Greece on a fool's errand.
The cup said "Drink me" so we drank
Shrinking or rising in size depending how the bullets hit us
Galahad had a clearer vision. Was an SS officer in that war

cup through his glasses.
The Grail lives and hovers
Around the camp and their love, their corpses. Honey-makers
Damned Australian marching into Greece on a fool's errand.
