The Sign

Behind bars--they?re rusty--
Caught in this dusty square trap.
I gaze toward the outside, but too many more peek within,
Amused. Like leeches,
They cling on to the metal,
Their heavy ignorance trampling my aspirations.
I never again will behold that gentle touch
Never again that love, that care,
Never again the vibrant greens.
But the sign won?t say that.

I am not saved, I am lost
In this alien world of dust.
Dust, ropes, iron, and dust.
It?s all I know but not what I wish to remember.
I?m cared for but not loved,
Alive, but dead as the dirt around me.
I come from the green but live in the brown.
I am not myself.
But the sign won?t say this.

The giants in tan shirts
Assume that I?m over it,
That it was their hands that saved me
And not removed.
Yes, with a bang a comrade died,
Another mother, another tender, another nurser
But why was I to face the consequences?
The sign won?t say this.

I sure don't know, Ed. But, what I do know, is that was an AWESOME POEM, Ed! I felt the agony of the tenor as he was cooped up in his own personal hell! That was a brilliant read, and I hope that you (or someone else in the forum) can come up with something equally as involving.

OH, WOW!!! I never realized that it was The Silver Monkey speaking directly from the Shrine! That makes the poem EVEN MORE awesome than it was before, Ed.

Hey Ed! These are the reasons why I interpreted this poem as being about the Silver Monkey. they are just misinterpretations of CERTAIN lines of the poem:

1. Caught in this dusty square trap= The square hole that the base had to be inserted into at the front of the room.
2. They cling on to the metal= The contestants that would get (or try to get) all 3 pieces all at once would have to hold on tight, or else suffer a "Jeweled Necklace" Also, by metal, I thought you were referencing the Silver in Silver Monkey.
3. I never again will behold that gentle touch= The touch of Legends contestants making their way through the Temple.
4. Never again that love, that care= The love, and reverence of, The Shrine of the Silver Monkey and it's inhabitant by all of Legends Fandom.
5. I am not saved, I am lost In this alien world of dust= The storage facility that the Silver Monkey currently resides in today.
6. Alive, but dead as the dirt around me= The Silver Monkey being existent, but worth the same as the dust that forms on it due to the show being over.
7. I come from the green but live in the brown= The early GREENISH tinges of early stages of metal fatigue to the BROWNISH hue of rust. (Once again the Silver in Silver Monkey.)
& 8. That it was their hands that saved me And not removed= The fact that the contestants would assemble the Monkey, but would NEVER remove it from the Temple.
