Two Birds, One Stone

 Note to Reader:

In my posts, I generally try to avoid the vicious and mean-spirited.

Not today.

 

So, Kenny Klein is dead: a man who, by his actions, betrayed his people, his Craft, and his gods.

Of some, I say: let them be forgotten. But as for Klein: what he has done, let it be remembered against him.

 

In addition to being a man of no honor, Klein was, of course, a songwriter. You may be familiar with a Samhain chant of his:

Down we go to the World Below:

we bring with us our Light to show.

Up we rise with the Dark in our eyes:

we bring to Light a piece of the Night.

 

Personally, I've always disliked it. “...our light to show”: 'tis a poor poet that needs to rearrange grammar to suit rhyme. A good artist controls his medium, not the other way around.

One time-honored way to destroy the unworthy is, of course, with satire.

Two birds, one stone.

Down we go to the World Below:

but where it stops, we just don't know.

Kenny Klein got in hot water

molesting people's underage daughters.

Poet, scholar and storyteller Steven Posch was raised in the hardwood forests of western Pennsylvania by white-tailed deer. (That's the story, anyway.) He emigrated to Paganistan in 1979 and by sheer dint of personality has become one of Lake Country's foremost men-in-black. He is current keeper of the Minnesota Ooser.

    Mr. Posch,

    Perhaps Mr. Klein will join Phlegyas as an official greeter in the Kingdom of the Dead. Another man who betrayed his people, and dishonored the Goddesses and Gods.

    He can provide an English translation of Phlegyas', "Discite iustitiam, moniti, et non temnere divos!"

    Mr. Klein will be saying, "Learn righteousness, and scorn no God!", over and over again for all eternity as Hades' personal Wal-Mart greeter.
