(after the films)

some unholy myth of achievement
rat champion of every maze
we wish you well in your bereavement
reborn we know our loss of face

yet sacred is your perseverance
you’ve learned what rats may not outrun
our paradoxical convergence
but what of those you  ‘do’ anon?

true bearing may lie in refusal
to play the game the way you’re placed
identity’s smile found fraternal
life’s risk borne, a whole new face
